DALLAS (AP) - The wife of rock musician Ted Nugent has been arrested after a handgun was found in her carry-on luggage at an airport security checkpoint.
Police confirmed Friday that 51-year-old Shemane Ann Nugent was taken into custody at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
An incident report says Nugent told police she forgot the weapon was in her bag while trying to catch a flight Thursday to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She told police she began carrying the handgun after receiving death threats. She's licensed to carry a concealed weapon.
She's been married to Ted Nugent since 1989. He's an outspoken supporter of gun rights.
The Dallas Morning News reports that through July of this year security personnel at the airport had found 57 guns in carry-on bags.
