Another day, another celebrity kid gets inducted into the mugshot gallery… *sigh* This week it’s 20 year old Zonnique Pullins of rapper T.I’s ‘Family Hustle’ clan.
Pullins, T.I’s step-daughter, posed for the mugshot above after she was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta Thursday evening (June 16, 2016).
The aspiring singer, whose mother is Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, was taken into custody for carrying a weapon through security.
According to a police report, Pullins was carrying a .380 Ruger semi-automatic pistol in her purse at the airport which was detected by an X-ray tech when she tried to go through the security checkpoint.
Pullins told authorities she had a weapons permit but one was not found in the database. She was then placed under arrest and taken to Clayton County jail, while her gun was confiscated.
She was released at 2:09 a.m. Friday morning.
Neither T.I. nor Tiny have commented on their child’s arrest, but Tamara Whitaker (Pullins’ cousin) spoke out on her behalf via Instagram, stating:
My boo got the cutest mugshot in the game. Let me just clear a couple things up for you guys . Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what’s needed . With the late shootings and death of a pop star all in Orlando just this week , I think it’s very appropriate that she carries a gun just not to the airport maybe lol. But my girl is home and good so please don’t start with the ignorant rumors , she was home and handled before you even heard about it. Zonnique has great parents that made sure she was okay from the moment she was caught. Not all celebrities keep security on them 24/7 they have to protect themselves just like regular people and we all have learned even security can’t always protect you . Her mugshot is still cute as hell lol
