Petey Pablo Arrested For Carrying Gun on Plane on 9/11

Looks like there’ll be empty seat at this year’s VMAs. Petey Pablo, born Moses Barrett III, was arrested earlier this morning (September 11) at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport before boarding a flight to Los Angeles for the annual MTV award show.

Airport security discovered a concealed weapon in Pablo’s carry-on luggage and he was promptly arrested. He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm.

According to, bail was set at $50,000 and Pablo was released. He’s due back in Court on Monday. —Anslem Samuel

    Fuckin idiot. He’s up for some serious charges. First he thinks he can revive his career by signing to Death Row Records then he carries a stolen gun onto a plane. Someone conjure up more idiotic things to do because I can’t. He makes Waka Flacka look like Hypatia of Alexandria combined with Stephen Hawking.

    This nigga has got to be the stupidest muthafucka on the face of the earth. First, Death Row. Now this.

  • hippaToDaHoppa

    Some people do some ridiculous shit for publicity. I have to believe this was a pub stunt because it makes me sad to think a human being could be that fucking stupid.

  • projecthallwaypisser

    Can’t believe this nigga still has enough money to post bail… and why the fuck was he going to L.A.???? This nigga ain’t up for no awards…

  • jtm

  • zayzkidd

    IS THIS A JOKE? It seems like these lil dudes wanna get arrested just to get publicity… Either that are they fagz. What in the world would make ANYBODY decide that they want to bring a gun on a AIRPLANE ON 9/11? I didn’t think this dude was fake like this, but I guess he just like T.I. and all the rest of em.

  • ri067953

    Just goes to show how much MTV is in the shitter. They actually have to invite this guy to the VMAs to fill seats.

    “He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm.”

    North Carolina throw yo’ hands up! No seriously, get ‘em up. You’re under arrest for being a washed up has been in possession of a dead career. The gun ain’t helping any either.

  • hot rod

    And the VMA for “Dumbest Nigga on the Planet goes to…” Cmon Man! Really Son? You niggas going prison for dumb ass shit hoping to revive yalls career done played out!They need to lock yall up and throw away the key. you dont deserve to be in the Free World! Moron!

  • El Tico Loco

    Maybe he doesn’t know the year. Bringing a hot gun thru airport security and signing to Death Row probably worked back in 96.

    Crack headz do Crack head shit
    get of the pipe nigga!

  • Hyde

    Why he gotta be an idoit….if he got killed in LA, then he’d be dumb for not bringing his gun…the fool who killed Dolla got his gun over here from ATL, he shoulda brought the correct paperwork…he might have forgot it..i been in the same situation..

    • El Tico Loco

      He’s an idiot for not bringing the correct paperwork then, whatever that might be. It’s 9th the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and if you haven’t noticed there’s a lot of racial tension going on. Why would he even consider that move to be a wise decision period.

      • Capital G

        He couldn’t have the “right paperwork”. The gun was stolen and he’s a convicted felon which means he lost the right to ever own a firearm. Dumb ass people do dumb ass things.


    not a good look petey…….if youre scared to hit L.A. then call up a homeboy to get you a burner when you touch down. security is too tight on 9/11…….aint shit gonna happen on the plane!!!!

  • EmCDL

    I just laughed at this after I finished reading it, still cracking up. Its so stupid that its funny!

    Who in their right mind would carry a gun…A STOLEN GUN…on an airplane, on 9/11????? Fail on a higher scale…..

    And who invited this fool to the VMAs??? Did he come out with a new album or something?

    What is wrong with people?????
