RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Officials say rapper Petey Pablo has been arrested at a North Carolina airport on gun charges.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin says 37-year-old Petey Pablo — whose real name is Moses Barrett III — was arrested Saturday morning. He is charged with being a felon with a gun and carrying a concealed, stolen weapon.

Hamlin says Transportation Security Administration agents found a gun in the rapper's carry-on luggage.

Petey Pablo was released on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Monday. A phone listing could not be found for his residence in nearby Knightdale.

Petey Pablo is best known for the songs "Raise Up" and "Freek-a-Leek."
