Dang Memphitz! You don’t actually have to do EVERYTHING Lil Wayne does, you know.
BOSSIP has confirmed exclusively that record exec-turned-reality tv star Mickey “Memphitz” Wright was arrested this morning after attempting to go through Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with a fully loaded .40 caliber weapon. The weapon was found in his luggage during a routine security check as Memphitz and his new wife Toya Carter prepared to board a flight to Indiana.
Memphitz claims that he forgot the gun was in his suitcase and had not intended on bringing the gun, which also had a bullet in the chamber, through the airport.
He was arrested by the Atlanta Airport Division of the Clayton County Sheriff’s office and was booked at the Sheriff’s jail at 11:56 this morning. He is currently being held at the jail on the single charge of carrying a weapon in an unauthorized location. His bail amount has yet to be specified.
According to an eyewitness, Toya remained calm throughout the whole ordeal.
Memphitz and Toya just completed their first duties as the new spokespersons for Ampro Gel, appearing at the Bonner Bros. Hair Show in Atlanta over the weekend.
More details as they emerge.
