No seriously, she was ARRESTED LINK
The wife of singer Ted Nugent was arrested Thursday afternoon after security found a gun in her carry-on luggage at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Airport spokesman David Magana confirmed that the DFW Airport Department of Public Safety took Shemane Ann Nugent, 51, into custody, and “the rest of it is working its way through our system of legal approval.”
Nugent’s attorney, David Finn, said that taking the gun to the airport was an “honest mistake.” Finn said Nugent has a concealed handgun license.
Finn said Nugent had worked late and got up early Thursday for the airport, and either “completely forgot or never knew the weapon was in her bag.”
“She is very embarrassed. She’s never been in this situation before,” said Finn. “She has expressed remorse for any inconvenience for any public safety officials.”
Finn said Nugent has no criminal record, and he does not expect his client to be indicted by a grand jury.
A police report is expected to be released tomorrow.
Shemane has been married to Ted Nugent since 1989. He is scheduled to play in Ramona, Calif., on Thursday night.
Ted Nugent, a staunch supporter of gun rights, made headlines earlier this year when he criticized President Obama on his views on gun control.
Guns are allowed in checked luggage, but not on planes. Through July, security found 57 guns in carry-on bags at D/FW Airport. The airport ranks second behind Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, according to a Transportation Security Administration spokesman. George Bush Intercontinental Airport ranks third, and Dallas Love Field comes in at No. 12. Image: http://www.goldtip.com/userfiles/image/Shemane%20Nugent%20Photo-sm.jpg
