Los Angeles County prosecutors won’t file felony charges against actor Dennis Farina for having a gun in his luggage at an airport earlier this month.

Farina was arrested for investigation of carrying a concealed weapon.

Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office, said Friday there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Farina with a felony.

Instead, the case was referred to the city attorney’s office, which will decide whether to file misdemeanor charges that carry a lighter sentence.

Farina has said he forgot the weapon was there.
