Police report: Durst had revolver on him when arrested
NEW ORLEANS - A police report says wealthy eccentric Robert Durst was in possession of a revolver when he was arrested at a New Orleans hotel on a murder charge in the death of his friend in Los Angeles.
Durst waived extradition Monday and is expected to be taken to Los Angeles to face the murder charge. His attorney says the extradition is being delayed because prosecutors in New Orleans are considering charges.
It's not clear what those charges are. The district attorney's office is not commenting.
In Louisiana, a person needs a permit to carry a concealed weapon. It's not immediately clear if Durst had a permit.
Durst is accused of killing his friend Susan Berman in 2000 and has been suspected in the disappearance of his first wife. He was acquitted in the killing of his neighbor.
