Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Benzino put his carry-on bag on the conveyor belt at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A suspicious TSA employee dug inside and found a loaded 9 millimeter firearm with 7 rounds in the magazine.
Benzino didn't make his flight to L.A., but he did get his very own escort to the local jail. He was released on $3K bail.
The reality star was fired from the show after allegedly making death threats against another cast member.
