Rapper Busted for Carrying Concealed Weapon

Rapper Petey Pablo was arrested this morning at an airport in North Carolina on weapons charges after he allegedly tried to sneak a gun through airport security. Does he not know what day it is?

According to cops, Pablo was busted at Raleigh-Durham International Airport -- he was allegedly on his way to Los Angeles and the MTV Video Music Awards. We're told the rapper was going through security and the gun was spotted in his carry-on bag -- security then called airport police.

Pablo, real name Moses Barrett III, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm. We're told he posted $50,000 and was released.

He's due back in Wake County Court on Monday.

Why would anyone care about this? Does anyone even know who this is? There are people busted every day for trying to take a gun on a plane, its just not in the news.

Tmz is a haven for rappers/athletes (mostly ones that no one cares about), politicians, and z-listers. Harvey and his head honcho (I forget his name) are just too damn old fashioned. That's why there are so many corny headlines too. Hopefully someday they won't be so controlling and let someone else breath some life into the place and get rid of the corny-ness.

So, he was released. Free to get another gun and shoot whoever he was planning to shoot. The legal system is grand, isn't it. Too bad we have no justice system.

That's one way to get on TMZ.

He's already a felon so maybe he justed wanted some "alone time" with some of his old prison homies.
