Bernie Ecclestone: Former F1 boss arrested in Brazil for illegally carrying gun while boarding plane

Former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has been arrested in Brazil for illegally carrying a gun while boarding a private plane to Switzerland. In a statement on Thursday, local police said they found an undocumented LW Seecamp .32 gun in the 91-year-old’s luggage during an X-ray screening. Ecclestone acknowledged owning the gun, but said he was unaware it was in his luggage at the time. Ecclestone, who spent 40 years as the head of Formula 1 before stepping down in 2017, is married to Brazilian-born Fabiana Ecclestone.
