Rapper Petey Pablo is set to surrender to authorities on Wednesday morning (13Oct10) after cops issued a warrant for his arrest over gun charges.
The hip-hop star - real name Moses Barrett III - was detained at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina last month (11Sep10) after security officers allegedly found a pistol in his carry-on luggage.
The Freek-a-Leek hitmaker was later released on $50,000 (£33,000) bail.
Pablo's representative claims the pistol does not belong to the star and he forgot the firearm was in his bag after taking it from a pal.
But a federal judge has now issued an arrest warrant for Pablo after government officials claimed the star was fully aware he was in possession of "a concealed dangerous weapon that was and would have been accessible to him in flight".
Pablo is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm and attempting to take the gun onto an airplane, reports TMZ.com.
A spokesperson for Pablo tells the website he was unaware of the warrant but now plans to surrender to authorities early on Wednesday.
