Benzino was thrown in the slammer last night (Jan. 27) for trying to take loaded gun on his flight to Los Angeles, according to reports.
While going through the security checkpoint at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a TSA employee searched one of 'Zino's bags and found a loaded 9 millimeter gun with 7 rounds in the magazine. The former Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star was then hauled off to jail. He was released on $3,000 bail.
Benzino and his fiancee, Althea Heart, were fired from LHH for allegedly making death threats towards his friend-turned-enemy Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, producers and other staff members.
