Primary Menu reports that rapper Plies was arrested at the airport today.

The guy’s real name is Algernod Lanier Washington. He lives here in Wesley Chapel. Reports say he had a Glock 43 9mm semiautomatic pistol in his carry-on. He didn’t have a concealed carry permit. Even if he did, obviously you can’t carry a weapon into the terminal. He was released from Hillsborough County Jail tonight after posting bail.
