Rapper Benzino has reportedly been arrested after allegedly attempting to carry a loaded gun through security at an airport in Atlanta, Georgia.

The former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star, real name Raymond Scott, is said to have been stopped by security personnel at an X-ray check-point at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Tuesday (27Jan15).

Editors at Tmz.com report cops were called in after a member of staff allegedly found a loaded weapon in his luggage, and the star, who is believed to have been en route to Los Angeles, was escorted to a local jail before being released on $3,000 (£1,900) bail.
