TSA Drama: Ted Nugent’s Wife Arrested After Gun Found in Carry-On Bag

The Dallas Daily Morning News reports:
The wife of rock musician Ted Nugent was arrested Thursday afternoon at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport after a gun was found in her carry-on luggage.
Airport spokesman David Magana confirmed that the D/FW Airport Department of Public Safety had taken Shemane Ann Nugent, 51, into custody.
He declined to comment further, saying, “The rest of it is working its way through our system of legal approval.”
A police report is expected to be released Friday.
Nugent’s attorney, David Finn, said taking the gun to the airport was an “honest mistake.” Nugent “completely forgot or never knew the weapon was in her bag.”
She has a license to carry a concealed handgun, Finn said.
“She is very embarrassed. She’s never been in this situation before,” Finn said. “She has expressed remorse for any inconvenience for any public safety officials.”
He said Nugent has no criminal record, and he does not expect that a grand jury will indict his client.
