Ted Nugent's Wife


Gun at the Airport

8/29/2013 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0829-shemane-nugent-ted-nugent-wife-arrested-article-gettyTed Nugent's wife Shemane Deziel was just arrested at an airport in Dallas, Texas ... and sources tell us it was because she brought a gun into the terminal ... TMZ has learned.

The arrest took place at Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport. It's unclear if Ted was with Shemane at the time of the arrest.

Shemane has been married to the "Cat Scratch Fever" rocker since 1989 -- they have one child together. They reportedly met when Ted was a guest on a Detroit radio station, where she worked on the news team.

Story developing ...

Just thank God she was arrested before she had a chance to kill indiscriminately anyone she deemed deserving.

A little bit about the American hero and most importantly, all around family man, Ted Nugent. From Wikipedia:
Nugent has had two wives and has eight children, including five out of wedlock in two liaisons almost 30 years apart. In the late 1960...s, prior to his first marriage, Nugent fathered a boy, Ted (Mann) and a girl, whom he gave up for adoption in infancy. This did not become public knowledge until 2010. The siblings were adopted separately and had no contact with one another. The son learned the identity of his birth father in 2010 through the daughter's quest to make contact with him and their birth parents.
According to a news report, Nugent over the years had discussed the existence of these children with his other children.
In 2005 Nugent was involved in a legal battle for not paying enough child support for a child he had out of wedlock in 1995.[28] It was finally resolved when Nugent was ordered to pay $3,500 per month in child support.
He was married to his first wife, Sandra Jezowski, from 1970 to 1979. They had two children, son Theodore Tobias "Toby" Nugent and daughter Sasha Nugent. Sandra died in a car crash in 1982. His second marriage was to Shemane Deziel, whom he met while a guest on Detroit's WLLZ-FM, where she was a member of the news staff. They married on January 21, 1989. Together they have one child, son Rocco Winchester Nugent.
In 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so Nugent joined Massa's parents in signing do***ents to make himself her legal guardian, an arrangement that Spin magazine ranked in October 2000 as #63 on their list of the "100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock"

And don't forget about American Hero Ted wearing the same clothes which he urinated and defecated in for a week so he could get out of serving in the Armed Forces.

So, what the story says is, she was arrested while maybe, or maybe not, violating the law. She was not in liberal-land. She was in Texas. I can't imagine Ted's wife carrying without a CHL. In Texas you can carry in an airport, just steer clear of the secure areas. If you go into a secure area with a firearm you could either be passed on through to your plane, shot or something in between.

Good. Now throw the husband in the clink for guns too.

People make mistakes. Ted Nugent is a man that stands up for what he believes in. He is not a sheep like too many of you. Ted and Shemane also do amazing charity work. Stop focusing on the negative in the past and open your eyes to the good.
