Ted Nugent's wife says she carried a loaded handgun through airport security this week BY ACCIDENT ... a gun she owned because of death threats she had been receiving ... this according to the police report stemming from her arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... 51-year-old Shemane Deziel was busted Thursday morning at Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport for bringing a gun into the terminal.

But according to the police report, she didn't just bring the gun into the terminal ... she actually left it in her carry-on bag to bring it onto the plane ... and it was LOADED.

TSA screeners said they spotted the Smith & Wesson 38 special revolver on an x-ray monitor, and when police inspected Deziel's luggage, they noticed it was loaded with 5 rounds of ammunition with an additional 10 rounds packed in a side pocket of her bag.

Shemane said she had forgotten the gun was in her bag, but stated she had a concealed handgun license in Texas.

After Shemane was placed under arrest, she told police she began to carry the gun for protection after receiving death threats. She didn't specify where the threats were coming from or why she was receiving them. The gun and ammo were seized as evidence.

I can't imagine why anyone would threaten you, it was your draft dodging husband that said he would be dead or in jail if the President was elected, by the way should we expect his arrest?

She seems to have the same intelligence as her husband. Basically meaning none at all.

Okay Texas... if you let her off the hook, then you have to let everybody who claims to have had death treats off the hook (I know that's not the way it's going to work)
Having claimed she had death threats---is there evidence that she had reported it to the authorities. I'm sure if there isn't the celebrity preference system will find a work around for that.

how do u not notice u have a gun in your bag on the way to the airport? we all go thru our bags a half dozen times before leaving the house to make sure we remembered everything, surely one of those times we'd notice a gun...

Why would she get threats? Is it because her husband portrays himself as a real tough guy? In reality he's a draft dodger that s---- and wets his pants. Yeah,tough guy alright.

If you can't carry a gun responsibly, perhaps you shouldn't have one.

She's paranoid, looks like a pill head, and hasn't seen 51 in 20 years. That's what being married to a pig like Ted will do to a woman.

Does she thinks she's above the law? Lock this dumbo bimbo up.

Drag out the old 'death threats' card. Would be much easier to just say, 'Hey, I made a stupid mistake and I'll pay the fine.'

When you forget that you’re carrying a LOADED weapon in your purse it’s time for your concealed weapon license to be revoked.
