Plies was arrested after a gun was found in his carry-on bag at the airport.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the rapper was trying to board a Delta flight at Tampa International Airport on Wednesday (Sept. 19) when TSA agents discovered a Glock 43 and a fully-loaded magazine in one of his bags during a security screening.
Plies reportedly didn’t have a permit for the gun, and was arrested by airport police for carrying a concealed weapon, which is a felony. He is currently in custody and will be transferred to Hillsborough County Jail.
Sources close to Plies claim he mistakenly grabbed the wrong bag before going to the airport. He is a registered gun owner and admits the gun is his.
Just last month, T-Pain was detained after a gun was found in his bag during a security screening at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. He provided a valid permit to carry and was released.
