North Carolina rapper Petey Pablo is expected to turn himself in to authorities today (October 13th), on an arrest warrant for possession of a firearm by a felon, after he attempted to smuggle a gun on a plane on September 11th, 2010.
The grand jury claims the rapper, born Moses Barrett III, attempted to bring a gun on a plane at Raleigh-Durham International Airport as he traveled to the 2010 MTV Music Video Awards, which took place the following day in Los Angeles.
As Petey Pablo went through a security checkpoint, handlers discovered a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol, along with ammunition in his bag.
Representatives for the rapper claimed that he forgot the firearm was in his bag, after it was taken from a distressed friend who was threatening to use the weapon.
