T-Pain was stopped by TSA for allegedly having a gun in his carry-on luggage.
T-Pain was scheduled to to co-headline BACK 9INE Fest with Kyle today in Lubbock, TX but it looks like there’s a chance that he might be a bit late for his performance tonight. The singer was reportedly caught with a gun at the airport earlier today.
According to TMZ, TSA found a gun inside of T-Pain’s luggage at the Atlanta airport. Law enforcement said that the rapper’s carry-on bag was flagged at a main security checkpoint earlier today. When airport security checked the bag, they ultimately found a loaded Smith & Wessun .380. Cops were called shortly after and they ended up confiscating the gun. T-Pain was taken aside for questioning. At this point, it’s not sure if he’s been arrested. However, he did address the scenario on social media earlier today.
“#BitchIMightBe a tad bit late to #Lubbock #TX today. Things at the Atlanta airport are getting……….. eventful.” He wrote in the caption of his latest Instagram post which suggested he was dealing with Atlanta police over the gun-related scenario.
It’s unfortunate because Juelz Santana is currently dealing with some serious legal issues over a similar scenario. The Dipset rapper was charged earlier this year after TSA found a gun in his carry-on luggage. The rapper fled the scene but turned himself in a few days later. Juelz recently pleaded guilty to trying to bring the gun on the plane. He’s currently facing a maximum sentence of 20 years. Sentencing is expected to take place on December 12th.
