The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A federal grand jury indicted a Lexington man Monday after he allegedly hid a pocket knife in an aerosol can before passing through security checkpoints at Louisville International Airport.

Robert D. Sherrard, 30, will be arraigned in U.S. District Court on Nov. 18.

The indictment alleges that on July 11, Sherrard had a folding pocket knife when he attempted to board an aircraft that would cross state lines, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Kentucky.

The indictment further alleges that Sherrard knowingly entered an airport area and attempted to pass through the security checkpoint with the knife.

If convicted, Sherrard could face 11 years in prison, a $500,000 fine or supervised release for three years.
