Petey Pablo

EW is reporting that rapper Petey Pablo (“Raise Up”, “Freek-A-Leek”) was arrested at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina Saturday on gun charges. He was allegedly trying to carry a 9mm automatic pistol aboard a US Airways flight bound for Los Angeles.

Pablo, real name Moses Barrett III, told a police officer that he had forgotten that the weapon, later found to be stolen, was in his carry-on luggage.

He was charged Saturday with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen gun and carrying a concealed weapon. An airport police officer wrote in the arrest warrant that Barrett knew the Smith & Wesson Model 639 handgun had been reported stolen.

Pablo was convicted of armed robbery in 1993 and served 6 years of a 14 year sentence.

He is currently out on $50,000 bond.
