Shemane Nugent, Ted Nugent’s Wife, Arrested At Airport
Shemane Nugent, wife of rocker Ted Nugent, was arrested at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Thursday when a handgun was discovered in her carry-on luggage.
Shemane, 51, was going through security at the Texas airport when the gun was found by airport personal. She was subsequently arrested and taken into custody, Dallas/ Fort Worth International Airport spokesman David Magana confirmed to The Dallas Morning News.
The gun being present in her bag was an “honest mistake,” according to Shemane’s attorney David Finn. Finn maintains that his client likely had forgotten the gun was in that particular bag, or had never known that it was there in the first place. Furthermore, the lawyer states that Shemane has a license to carry a concealed weapon.
It’s not the first time that someone has been stopped by security for having a gun on them while attempting to pass through a checkpoint. In 2013 alone, the Texas airport has discovered nearly 60 guns in carry-on bags, reported the Morning News.
Shemane and Ted, who is known for his strong feelings pertaining to gun rights and the second amendment, have been married since 1989.
