Well it looks like former “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star Benzino has found a way to put his name back in to the headlines, only this time he isn’t the one in front of the gun, more so behind it.
According to TMZ, the rapper was arrested at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport when a TSA employee searched his bag after Benzino had placed his carry-on bag on to the conveyor belt, retrieving a loaded 9 millimeter handgun with reportedly 7 live rounds in the chamber.
He was on his way to LA and instead took a detour to a local jail but was released on $3,000 bail.
Let’s just say Benzino has had a rough year being that he was fired from Love and Hip Hop after allegedly making death threats against another cast member as well as being shot by his nephew while attending his mother funeral.
We can all admit that this one was just plain stupid on his part but he recently released a statement on Instagram where he tries to justify his actions.
Let’s chat below.
