TMZ reported that someone in his entourage tried to take the blame, but it was ultimately traced back to ‘Smoothio’ Coolio.


“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the rapper and his team were leaving L.A. Saturday morning when they got flagged by the TSA. We’re told a book bag belonging to the group contained a loaded gun. Our sources say a member of Coolio’s crew claimed the bag, but witnesses have told cops it was Coolio’s. “
