Zonnique Pulins, 20, was briefly jailed and charged for carrying a handgun at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Thursday, reports PEOPLE.

Pullins, the daughter of Tiny Harris and stepdaughter of rapper T.I., reportedly had a Ruger .380 semi-automatic pistol with a clip and five rounds in her purse. The firearm was detected by an X-Ray.

Pullins reportedly told officials that she was licensed to hold a firearm, but couldn’t provide the proof. She was released from Clayton County Jail on Friday morning.

9 Times T.I. and Tiny Gave Us Family Goals

A family member took to Instagram to say that Zonnique forgot the gun was in her purse.  “Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us, she forgot it was in her really big purse,” wrote Tamara Whitaker. “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.”

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
