(Newser) – We all know Ted Nugent loves guns, and apparently his wife does too. Shemane Deziel was arrested yesterday at a Dallas airport because, sources tell TMZ, she allegedly brought a gun into the terminal via her carry-on bag. She "completely forgot or never knew" the handgun was in the bag, her lawyer says, according to the Dallas Morning News (which has her name as Shemane Ann Nugent) "She is very embarrassed," the attorney adds. "She’s never been in this situation before. She has expressed remorse for any inconvenience for any public safety officials." The 51-year-old does have a concealed handgun license.
