Toya Carter

BET Star's Hubby Arrested

For Bringing Gun to Airport

8/22/2011 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822_wright_mug_EXDThe husband of Lil Wayne's baby mama #1 Toya Carter -- who co-stars alongside her in the BET reality show "Toya: A Family Affair" -- was arrested today at an airport in Atlanta ... after he allegedly tried to bring a gun onto an airplane.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, Mickey "Memphitz" Wright put his backpack through the X-ray scanner at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport -- and TSA agents quickly discovered the firearm and called the cops.

According to police, Wright had a valid license to carry the weapon ... insisting he had simply forgotten the gun was in his bag -- but it's still illegal to bring it on a plane.

Wright was arrested on the spot and transferred to a nearby jail. He is still in custody.

It just seems so ridiculous. It must have been a mistake on his part, he legit did not know/forgot it was in his bag. If you think he is dumb enough to believe the gun will not be found by the xray, well ..... you are dumb.

Someone that carries a gun like myself, you always know when you have your gun. I don't understand how someone can say I didn't remember it was in there, they should take his CHL away. Dumbass

The only people more stupid than this guy are the people making racist comments about him. So to all you folks on here making racist comments, how does it feel to actually be MORE stipid than this!?! I mean, you guys are dumber than dumb. You're probably just barely able to use a computer, but congrats on that. Maybe one day you will be able to speak in complete sentences. Good luck with that!

TMZ: Why don't you refer to Angelina Jolie as Brad Pitt's baby mama? -- Why do you ALWAYS use that term when black people are the subject of the story? !

OKAY, give Toya Carter some respect, she was married to Lil Wayne, not just some random baby mama.

ANOTHER ONE!!!! What kind of lives do these people live that they HAVE to carry guns. I don't own a gun, nobody I know owns a gun. I'm not against guns, EXCEPT, when people feel compelled to tote them in their everyday lives and on airplanes, makes me nervous... and you know how they get if you even look at them [in what they perceive as] the wrong way.

In the age we live in how do you go to the airport and forget you have a gun. If you are that irresponsible with a gun you should not own one in the first place. There is no excuse for not knowing where your gun is at all times, it is your responsibility.
