Ted Nugent's wife Shemane was reportedly arrested earlier today (Aug. 29) for allegedly attempting to bring a firearm through an airport security checkpoint.

According to ABC News, the rock legend and noted gun advocate's wife was arrested at the Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport when the weapon was found after an x-ray examination of her carry-on bag. The airport's Department of Public Safety confirmed that a person named Shemane Ann Nugent was arrested, processed through their holding facility and released later in the day.

Her husband, currently on tour in the southwestern United States, does not appear to have been with Shemane at the time of her arrest. The couple have been married since 1989 and have a son named Rocco.
