Newlywed wife Toya has been reunited with her hubby Memphitz following his arrest at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport this Monday for attempting to get through security with a 40 glock in his knapsack.
According to TMZ reports:
TMZ spoke with Mickey “Memphitz” Wright … who went in front of a judge in Clayton County, GA Tuesday afternoon … after TSA agents at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport discovered the Desert Eagle pistol in his carry-on bag Monday.
Wright tells us the judge was “very understanding” of his explanation — that he had placed the gun in a backpack weeks ago and simply forgot about it — and released him on bail.
Wright says he was “completely shocked” when TSA agents discovered the gun in his bag — but tells us, “I had my license and [the judge] did me right and let me out.”
He adds, “The TSA did their job … I just hate that it was me because I’m about positivity and motivation.”
When asked if he will ask the court to return the gun, Wright tells us, “Yes, i want my gun back” … but insists the next time he travels, he’ll leave the piece at home.
We’d hope so… The good news is, nobody really knows who this guy is besides his status as Toya’s hubby, so as long as he goes back to being about positivity and motivation his rep might not be entirely ruined. But really Memph — maybe it’s time to get a bodyguard to carry that heat?
