The wife of rock musician Ted Nugent has been arrested after a handgun was found in her carry-on luggage at an airport security checkpoint.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport spokesman David Magana confirmed to The Dallas Morning News that 51-year-old Shemane Ann Nugent was taken into custody Thursday.

Shemane Nugent's attorney, David Finn, says she made an "honest mistake" and either forgot or never knew the gun was in her bag. Finn says Nugent has a license to carry a concealed weapon.

She's been married to Ted Nugent since 1989. He's an outspoken supporter of gun rights who's criticized liberal groups over Second Amendment matters and other issues.

The Morning News reports security personnel at the airport through July have found 57 guns in carry-on bags.
