Ted Nugent’s wife Shemane Ann Nugent, was arrested Thursday at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport after security found a handgun in her carryon luggage.
David Magana, airport spokesman, confirmed the Nugent’s arrest with Dallas News offering little information about her arrest but saying, “The rest of it is working its way through our system of legal approval.”
Nugent’s attorney. David Finn, called the incident an “honest mistake” saying she “completely forgot or never knew the weapon was in her bag.”
Finn notes that Nugent has a license to carry a cancelled handgun.
Her lawyer has also released a statement noting that Nugent is incredibly “embarrassed.”
“She’s never been in this situation before,” Finn adds. “She has expressed remorse for any inconvenience for any public safety officials.”
This is the first time Nugent has been arrested, and Finn does not expect a jury to indict her.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that Ted and Shemane have been married since 1989. Ted is a longtime advocate for gun rights.
