Who is Bernie Ecclestone?

Bernie Ecclestone was arrested in Brazil on Wednesday night for illegally carrying a gun while boarding a private plane to Switzerland, local police said Thursday.

Brazilian police found an undocumented LW Seecamp .32 pistol in the former Formula One supremo’s luggage during an X-ray check, police said in a statement.

They added that he was later detained and transferred to a facility at the Viracopos airport, in Campinas.

Ecclestone, 91, acknowledged owning the gun but said he didn’t know it was in his luggage at the time, police said.

The Briton posted bail and was released to travel to Switzerland.
