zonnie*Zonnique Pulins, the 20-year-old stepdaughter of rapper T.I., was arrested last week and charged for carrying a gun at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. Pulins, whose mother is Tiny Harris, was taken into custody for carrying a .380 Ruger semi-automatic pistol in her purse through security. The gun was detected by an X-ray tech when she tried to go through the security checkpoint at the airport, according to a police report obtained by PEOPLE.

Neither T.I. nor Harris have commented on her arrest. However, Pullins’ cousin Tamara Whitaker spoke out on Instagram following  the incident, writing:

“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.”

Zonnique was released from jail the morning after her arrest and she remains on bail.
