Ted Nugent’s wife Shemane is facing a hefty fine after taking a loaded revolver into an airport terminal last week.
The 51 year old told police she had forgotten about the gun in her luggage as she attempted to pass through security at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport on Thursday.
She was arrested after X-ray operators discovered the .38 special handgun and five rounds of ammunition.
Nugent told cops she was carrying the gun for protection following a series a death threats against her.
She spent several hours behind bars before she was released.
