Joking about Ebola is the newest way to get yourself in trouble at the airport, but bringing a gun through security is the classic way ... as Waka Flocka Flame learned on Friday morning.

Flame was busted at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport when a security scan turned up a loaded handgun in his bag.

Waka didn't have a permit, so he was arrested and charged with Carrying a Weapon in a Prohibited Place. He was taken to Clayton County jail.
