Following his arrest on Saturday (September 11) for being in possession of a gun while attempting to board at flight to Los Angeles at North Carolina’s Raleigh Durham Airport, Petey Pablo spoke with local radio station K97.5 FM’S radio host Shena J about the incident.
According to southern rapper, despite how things look, this was not a stunt to drum up some publicity for his forthcoming projects, but a genuine mistake.
“It’s sad because I do have some new stuff coming out, but that’s not why it happened and I don’t want people to think that,” said Pablo. “A lot of people were disappointed. Understand, the situation, like for one, anybody that knows me knows that I ain’t gonna do nothing stupid.”
Adding, “We don’t do stupid things,” in reference to his culture.
Pablo also says he did feel the gun loading down his luggage but assumed the weight of his carry-on was due to the two Apple laptops that he usually takes with him when he travels.
“At the same time, I apologize to anybody that I may have let down. Understand, I did something that I felt was right at the particular time…I’m not on that ‘rah rah’ no more.”
