Former The Source magazine owner and former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Benzino was arrested at an Atlanta airport when he was caught trying to get on a flight with a loaded gun. Yes, this really happened.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Benzino put his carry-on bag on the conveyor belt at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A suspicious TSA employee dug inside and found a loaded 9 millimeter firearm with 7 rounds in the magazine.
Benzino didn’t make his flight to L.A., but he did get his very own escort to the local jail. He was released on $3K bail.

We’re going to bet he’s going to roll with the “I was in a rush and forgot my loaded gun in my carry-on defense.” Which he has. Good luck with that.
