According to Short, He was not arrested and the whole situation was just a huge mistake.
“I went to the airport and there was a gun in my bag and obviously it wasn’t purposely [there],” he said when asked about bring a gun to an airport. “Who would go through TSA with a pistol?… I made a mistake, packed the wrong bag, got there. When I realized what the problem was. I wanted to just talk to my legal people and say, ‘Hey man, can we figure this out?’ Probably 20-30 minutes after it happened we called back, talked to TSA, we talked to Burbank PD, we arranged for me to come back and get cited… I did not get arrested. I did not run out of the airport… I made a big fucking mistake.” (HipHopDX)
