Rapper Waka Flocka Flame was arrested on Friday after a gun was found in his carry-on bag at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, according to reports.

Police told the Associated Press that the 28-year-old MC, born Juaquin James Malphurs, did not have a weapons permit and was charged with carrying a weapon in a prohibited place after the firearm was found during a security scan.

He was taken to Clayton County Jail and has a court appearance set for Saturday, according to the AP.
