Rapper Arrested At NC Airport

A rap artist has been arrested at a North Carolina airport on gun charges.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin said 37-year-old Petey Pablo was arrested Saturday morning. He is charged with being a felon with a gun and carrying a concealed, stolen weapon.

Hamlin says airport police were notified by Transportation Security Administration agents that a gun had been found in carry-on luggage. Hamlin says Pablo whose real name is Moses Barrett III was arrested without incident.

WRAL-TV in Raleigh reported that Pablo was on his way to Los Angeles for the 2010 MTV Music Video Awards. Pablo was released on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Monday. He lives in nearby Knightdale. A phone listing could not be found.

Pablo is best known for songs "Raise Up" and "Freek-a-Leek."
