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.

She's baaaack    

That makes perfect sense. Just in case one of the pilots or flight staff or passengers on that particular flight was the anonymous person making the threats she wanted to be sure she was covered. Someone better check the water Ted has been using to make the Kool-Aid.

She's as much of a loser as her idiot husband. Crazy paranoid gun nuts that should be locked up - for the safety of society! Her and Nugent are both not mentally stable enough to own guns or any other weapons!!

Shemaniac Deziel sound to me as something that will burn. Ted Urgent is a crazy pos and wannebe hunter who thinks that illegal hunting is what a free man should do. This azzhole does far more damage than good. Let's hope he and his hoe he call's "wife" gonna have a hunting accident very soon.

Are you kidding me? Who, on this planet, doesn't know that you don't take a gun, much less a loaded one, to the airport in your carryon bag. She is a moron.

She 'forgot' the gun was in her purse, but remembered to pack an extra ten rounds in her suitcase for the gun she didn't know she had? What a happy coincidence.

One Edward Van Halen (yes, that Edward) found himself in similar cir***stances at the Burbank airport in 1995 (look it up). His excuse? He forgot it was in his luggage.
