It happened yesterday with a rapper at Tampa International Airport.
But if we gave you 50 guesses, I doubt you’d guess which QYK artist made the same mistake 2 years ago.

We’ll give you a couple hints. He just got married. (But it was not a shotgun wedding.)

At Raleigh Durham International Airport back in 2017, security spotted a black 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun and 63 bullets.

The bag belonged to American Idol Scotty McCreery! Scotty told TMZ he just forgot they were in there. Unlike the rapper Plies in Tampa yesterday, Scotty actually did a have a concealed carry permit. Scotty says he’s carried ever since he was robbed back in 2014.

Scotty was released by security and allowed to take the next flight.
