Tiny and T.I’s daughter Zonnique Pullins were arrested on Thursday (June 16) for gun possession in an airport.
Pullins attempted to go pass airport security at Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport with the gun in her bag, when an x-ray machine picked up on the gun, later confirmed to be a 380 Ruger pistol complete with a clip and five rounds. She told police she had the proper permit, but she didn’t have the permit on her. So, she was placed under arrest. Traditionally under law, Georgia is not an open carry state. However, it is legal to carry with a proper permit.
The 20-year-old former OMG Girlz member was arrested at for trying to take a loaded gun through airport security. Pullins was taken to Clayton County Jail and released early Friday morning with a pending court date.
Shortly after ‘Nique’s arrest became public, her cousin, Tamara Whitaker defended her on twitter, stating:
“Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what’s needed.”
That’s plausible. The biggest lession learned is to check your bags before traveling! Zonnique is only 20 and while the offense is serious, she does have proper paperwork and it should be cleared up when she goes to court. I’m sure T.I. held an important (and long) family meeting afterwards. Best of luck ‘Nique!
My boo got the cutest mugshot in the game. Let me just clear a couple things up for you guys . Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what's needed . With the late shootings and death of a pop star all in Orlando just this week , I think it's very appropriate that she carries a gun just not to the airport maybe lol. But my girl is home and good so please don't start with the ignorant rumors , she was home and handled before you even heard about it. Zonnique has great parents that made sure she was okay from the moment she was caught. Not all celebrities keep security on them 24/7 they have to protect themselves just like regular people and we all have learned even security can't always protect you . Her mugshot is still cute as hell lol
