Ted Nugent's wife Shemane Deziel was arrested for carrying a loaded handgun through security at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport this week.
She insists it was all an accident, however, and that she only owns and carries a weapon in the first place because of death threats she's been receiving.
Shemane Deziel, 51, was busted Thursday for bringing the Smith & Wesson .38 into the airport, and putting it through the security checkpoint in her carry-on bag.
TSA screeners saw the gun on an x-ray monitor, and when police inspected Deziel's luggage, they noticed it was loaded with five rounds of ammunition.
An additional 10 rounds were packed in a side pocket of her carry-on.
