Rapper Petey Pablo's representative has explained his weekend arrest on gun charges, insisting the star was only in possession of the weapon as a friend had threatened to "do something crazy" with the firearm.
The hip-hop star - real name Moses Barrett III - was apprehended at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina on Saturday (11Sep10) after security officers allegedly found a gun in his carry-on luggage.
The Freek-a-Leek hitmaker was charged with felony gun possession and carrying a concealed, stolen weapon and was later released on $50,000 (£33,000) bail.
Now his rep has spoken out to clear up the rumours surrounding the arrest, revealing that the gun did not belong to the rapper.
The spokesperson tells TMZ.com that Pablo forgot the firearm was in his bag after taking it from a pal who was threatening to use the weapon.
The star is due back in Wake County Court, North Carolina on 4 October (10).
