Playboy's Miss July arrested with gun at airport

ORLANDO, FL (WFLX) - A Playboy Playmate and Palm Beach Gardens High School graduate was arrested at Orlando International Airport on Monday when, police said, she tried to board a plane while carrying a revolver in her bag, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Shanna Marie McLaughlin, who grew up in Jupiter, was arrested by Orlando police after a gun was discovered in her duffel bag by the Transportation Security Administration with an X-ray machine at a security checkpoint.

Playboy's Miss July 2010 was confronted by police and claimed the gun belonged to her boyfriend, and she had no clue it was inside her bag.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the confiscated gun was a .45-caliber Colt revolver loaded with six hollow-point bullets, and McLaughlin does have a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon.

McLaughlin made big news last year, when she was part of a controversial photoshoot that took place in a UCF locker room.
