Times really do get rough after "American Idol!"
Security officials nabbed season four finalist Vonzell "Baby V" Solomon yesterday at Southwest Florida International Airport when they found an unloaded gun in her luggage.
Get this -- turns out Solomon actually has a permit to pack heat, but she still can't have one in an airport. Cops took her gun away and sent her packing with a court date.
Apparently the less successful "Idol" contestants are forced to be their own security!
