Shanna McLaughlin, a former Playboy Playmate and current graduate student, was arrested on Monday night at Orlando International Airport for trying to board a plane with a concealed weapon.

McLaughlin, aka Playboy's Miss July 2010, was headed to Los Angeles for a photo shoot, local Orlando station WKMG reports.

McLaughlin, a graduate student at University of Central Florida, was passing through security when a TSA officer saw what appeared to be a handgun in her bag.

When asked, McLaughlin "spontaneously" told the agent that it was her boyfriend's, she had no idea the gun was in her bag and that she does, in fact, have a license to carry a concealed weapon.

Nevertheless, the gun, a Ruger SAA .45 Colt was loaded with hollow point bullets. McLaughlin landed in an Orange County jail with a misdemeanor, and she has since been released, the Daily Mail reports.

There have been quite a few instances of loaded guns at airports this summer. On July 11, a man tried to steal a deputy's gun at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. Later that month, a woman was arrested for trying to sneak past security with a loaded gun at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, while a United employee was accidentally shot by a hunting riffle at Louis Armstrong Airport in New Orleans.

Yikes, she looks pretty rough and weathered for 25. Actually looking at her pics, she looks different in each one. They airbrush her eyes or nose differently - there is no consistency. Kind of ruins it seeing this. But that is some magical airbrushing and makeup by Playboy! Someone needs to tell her that she needs to stop talking because she sounds like a moran.

It is called a scrivener's error. What is with the lower case letter starting a sentence, or should I say an incomplete sentence, despite the extra question marks? You are quite obviously showing how uneducated you are, especially with your use of sophmoric acronyms. Perhaps before you point out an obvious typographicall error, you should complete your GED and learn proper grammar.

it's spelled 'sophomoric' you worthless piece of trash. and, none of us believe that you merely made a mistake when incorrectly spelling 'moron' as 'moran'. The 'a' is not even close to the 'o' on a keyboard. nice try, though, 'moron'. LMFAO!!!

I like how you had to put in the word homo in your response! It is ok, you can come out now we know you do not like girls! Funny how you have to point out spelling mistakes and not comment on the content of the article! Stop masturbating to pictures of Tom Cruise!

Ooops. I hate when I forget that I'm carrying when I try to get through airport security, it's so embarassing.

Unless your dragging a dufflebag with 50 to 75 pound. It pretty hard not to know your carring a SA Ruger in .45 Long Colt loaded is beyond me.
