Benzino Was Arrested For Bringing A Loaded Handgun Into The Airport


Benzino is the latest reality star to get tangled up with the law. A few days ago (Jan. 27), the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star was reportedly arrested at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for having a loaded handgun in his bag. After his bag sent the alarm off on the conveyor belt, airport employees uncovered a loaded nine millimeter gun just chilling in his carry-on. Benzino was arrested on the spot and sent to jail, where he was later released on $3,000 bail. Zino understands how foolish the whole occurance sounds, but he claims the entire situation was an accident. “The gun is registered in my name, it’s a misdemeanor charge and will be dismissed when I go to court,” he explained in a post shared from his account. “I should have checked my bag first but I forgot, not that serious. I thank all of the people who have an open mind and are not so quick to judge. I don’t have a felony on my record.” Check his Instagram below for the full explanation.
