T.I.’s eldest daughter Zonnique Pullins , was arrested yesterday (June 16) for attempting to carry a gun through airport security, according the police reports
The OMG Girlz member was reportedly taken into custody at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and taken to Clayton County Jail where she was charged at 10 p.m. EST for the crime.
Zonnique, who is one of the rapper’s seven children he has between himself and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, was released at 2:09 a.m. this morning.
Her cousin, Tamara Whitaker, took to Instagram to make light of the situation and explain some details.
“My boo got the cutest mugshot in the game,” she writes for a caption of the official photo. “Let me just clear a couple things up for you guys . Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what’s needed . With the late shootings and death of a pop star all in Orlando just this week , I think it’s very appropriate that she carries a gun just not to the airport maybe lol. But my girl is home and good so please don’t start with the ignorant rumors , she was home and handled before you even heard about it. Zonnique has great parents that made sure she was okay from the moment she was caught. Not all celebrities keep security on them 24/7 they have to protect themselves just like regular people and we all have learned even security can’t always protect you . Her mugshot is still cute as hell lol”
This comes weeks after the shootout at Irving Plaza and days after a deadly mass shooting in Orlando that left 49 people dead and 50 injured.
In New York, When the shots started going off T.I. hadn’t performed yet . Troy Ave and 3 others were injured. One man,Ronald Mcphatter who was Troy’s bodyguard, was killed. Troy Ave was arrested on charges of attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon after video surveillance footage surfaced of him firing shots outside a VIP green room. He is currently in jail at Rikers Island with no bail awaiting trial.
After the shooting T.I. expressed his sadness over the violence.
“My heart is heavy today,” T.I said on IG. “Our music is intended to save lives, like it has mine and many others. My heartfelt condolences to the family that suffered the loss & my prayers are with all those injured.”
