People, people, must always remember to check your bags before you go to the airport!  Security is so tight these days, there's little chance that you'll get anything past them. 

Last week Strap, member of Travis Porter, learned this lesson the hard way. He was arrested at an airport in Atlanta for having possession of a firearm in his bag while being checked by security.

His fellow band members Quez and Ali spoke with VIBE hours later about what happened.

VIBE: I know you guys can't really talk about Strap's legal situation, but what was your initial reaction to hearing that he got arrested.

Travis Porter: We was with him.

Oh, you guys were altogether?

Quez: Yeah, it was just crazy. He made a mistake. He didn't look in his bag, and he left the studio and went straight to the airport to get on his flight. And you should've seen his face. He was like 'what's going on?' They was like 'Yeah we need him over there.' And he's like, 'man, whats going on?' I don't even know what's going on. He had no idea the joint was in the bag.

Ali: Actually he is on the plane to New York right now. We have a show tomorrow.

Lil Wayne ended up doing 8 months in Riker's Island for having a firearm on his tour bus.  Let's hope Strap can find a way out of serving a jail sentence for this one.
