Shemane Nugent – wife of rocker Ted Nugent – was arrested Thursday at Dallas/Fort Worth airport with a gun in her bag as she went through security.

CBS reports Shemane was arrested after security detected a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver at the bottom of her carry-on bag. The pistol was loaded with five rounds of ammunition. Another 10 rounds were located in the side pocket of the gun’s carrying case.

When questioned about the bag and what was inside of it, she told officers, “I know what the problem is. I forgot the gun was in the bag.”

Nugent told police she has a concealed handgun license and been carrying the gun for protection when she attended physical training classes because she had been receiving death threats. She told officers she forgot the pistol was inside the bag when she decided to use it as a carry-on.

Nugent was handcuffed and arrested; she has since been released.
