Master P Crew "Alarms" New Orleans Airport
Master P ended up the center of some unwanted attention in New Orleans on Tuesday when his entourage set off security alarms at the New Orleans Airport. The daily "Times-Picayune" reports that the alarms were triggered by the presence of two semi-automatic .45 caliber handguns (one with a laser sight) and some hollow point bullets in a case belonging to a bodyguard.
The guard, late for the flight, had apparently failed to check the weapons at the ticket counter and instead placed the custom-made aluminum carrying case on the x-ray belt at the gate security station.
The paper reports that Kevin McDaniel, 32, of Inglewood, California, the registered owner of the guns, was detained while the rest of the group continued on to Minneapolis.
McDaniel, the authorities told the paper, had made no attempt to conceal the weapons, has no criminal record and was described as cooperative and cordial. He was issued a misdemeanor summons for illegal possession of a firearm and allowed to leave, but the weapons were confiscated.
Master P and crew had appeared in New Orleans, the rapper's hometown, Monday night as part of a WCW wrestling event at the Superdome (see "Master P Makes Primetime WCW Debut") .
