Rapper Kamaiyah was recently arrested at the airport for possessing a loaded gun in her purse.
While the artist was attempting to go from Burbank to Oakland on a plane on Wednesday. She had a loaded 380 semi-automatic pistol in her purse as she went through screening, according to TSA personnel.
She was detained by Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police at the Hollywood Burbank Airport and charged with felony firearm possession. She was then taken to the Burbank Jail in California.
A representative for the Burbank Police Department said in a statement released on Wednesday that the incident happened approximately 3:30 pm, after the Oakland Nights rhymer had tried to board a flight.
Further saying, ”Ms. Johnson was detained by TSA in the passenger screening area of the airport after an agent located a loaded handgun inside of a purse she had in her possession.”
“Police responded, rendered the weapon safe, and placed Ms. Johnson under arrest. It was also discovered there was a warrant for Ms. Johnson’s arrest stemming from a 2019 investigation in Burbank of a negligently-discharged firearm inside a movie theater of a local condominium complex. She was booked and held on $70,000 bail, but has since bonded out of custody.”
Meanwhile the news of the rapper’s arrest was all over the internet forcing Kamaiyah to address the issue after she posted bail. She denied claims that an arrest warrant had been issued for her. She gave her side of the incident in an Instagram post from earlier today.
“I don’t have a warrant for my arrest. Last week I was on my way to Oakland to get my hair done and accidentally left my gun in my purse at the airport. I’m laughing in my mugshot because I told the guard you gone have me on the blogs looking like a hedgehog and look at me a week later on the blogs looking like a damn hedgehog.”
