*UPDATE* Gun Photo/Mug Shot Added. Rapper Claims He Grabbed Fiancee’s Bag By Mistake (Pic)

Waka Flocka Flame is sitting in Clayton County jail after he was arrested and charged with Carrying a Weapon in a Prohibited Place.


According to TMZ, Waka was at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Friday morning, October 10, ready to board a plane. As his luggage passed through security a loaded handgun was found in one of his bags.

The rapper doesn’t have a license to carry so he was hauled off to jail.

**UPDATE** October 11

TMZ just posted Waka’s mug shot and a photo (up top) of the 5.7X28mm pistol that was found in his bag. According to the TSA, it was loaded with 29 rounds plus one in the chamber.

Waka’s lawyer says the rapper grabbed his fiancee’s bag by mistake when he left home.

Not sure if that will help him in court though.
