Juelz Santana committed one of the goofiest crimes in some time when he fled the TSA in a taxi cab after he got caught trying to bring a pistol on a plane at Newark airport.
He ended up serving about a year and a half for his crime. Juelz got out a little early last month, and he explained his crime on Fat Joe's podcast.
"I go to TSA and put my bag through security... In my mind, for everyone that's listening, that's not even on my mind," he explained. "hey got my bag. I go through security, it went through. The dude from Newark airport, he knows me. He about to check the bag. Someone called from the screening point where the screen is at and said, nah, we gotta run it through again."
Juelz had forgotten that he even had a gun -- he thought the yet-to-be-identified object was a soda -- but he remembered he warrant out for a traffic violation.
"The fact that they had the warrant and they said higher authorities are going to search your bag. So I'm like, they gon' lock me up for the weekend," he continued. "I literally walked. Everybody saying, 'He ran out the airport. He had one shoe on...' I get in the cab. I hear, on Hot 97... So gettin' close to my crib, Hot 97 said, 'Rapper Juelz Santana Flees Newark airport after firearm was retrieved from his bag.' I'm like 'What?! Ain't no firearm retrieved from my bag.'"
When Juelz thought it about harder, he remembered he had brought a gun. The rest is history.
