Former "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Benzino was arrested Tuesday night at an airport for trying to send a loaded gun through a security checkpoint. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Benzino put his carry-on bag on the conveyor belt at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A suspicious TSA employee dug inside and found a loaded 9 millimeter firearm with 7 rounds in the magazine.


Benzino didn't make his flight to L.A., but he did get his very own escort to the local jail. He was released on $3K bail.

The reality star was fired from the show after allegedly making death threats against another cast member.
