    Juror could now face charges.

    A Tarrant County juror was arrested after she brought a handgun into the Tim Curry Criminal Justice Center Tuesday morning.

    Juror Dayna Kay Purtee was arrested without incident after a loaded 32-caliber handgun was found in her purse during a security search at the courthouse.

    Purtee was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.

    Terry Grisham, spokesperson for the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that "it's a moot point if she had a license for it or not. This is one place that someone can't walk into with a gun."
