Playboy Playmate Arrested For Doing Incredibly Dumb Thing At Airport
Apparently being a Playboy Playmate will win you no favor with airport security. Just ask 26-year-old Shanna McLaughlin. Once known as the voluptuous blonde who appeared in a provocative photo shoot in her alma mater UCF's locker room under the oblivious eye of football coach George O'Leary, she will now be known as the voluptuous blonde who tried to sneak a gun onto a plane.
Attempting to board a flight to Los Angeles out of Orlando International Airport, McLaughlin put her duffle bag through an X-ray machine at a security checkpoint when a Transportation Security Administration operator saw the gun and alerted police.
When confronted, police said the 26-year-old Playboy Miss July 2010 claimed the bag was hers, and that the gun belonged to her boyfriend and she didn’t know it was inside.
McLaughlin was jailed on a charge of carrying a firearm in a place prohibited by law. The gun, a .45 caliber Colt revolver loaded with six hollow-point bullets, was confiscated.
We're not sure what we want to believe more: that McLaughlin's boyfriend, for whatever reason, decided to sneak a gun into her bag ... or that she was actually dumb enough to think she could bring a loaded gun onto an aircraft. Whatever the case may be, Miss July 2010 either needs a new boyfriend, or a new degree. Apparently she didn't get a lot of studying done while at UCF.
