Rapper Petey Pablo has waited until his last day to turn himself in to authorities for possession of a firearm by a felon. Authorities are expecting and hoping the North Carolina rapper will turn himself in today (October 13th). If not, the consequence for his absence could be very severe.

Pablo, real name Moses Barrett III, was indicted by a grand jury for attempting to smuggle a gun on a plane. Barrett was leaving Raleigh-Durham International Airport en route to the 2010 MTV Music Video Awards in Los Angeles, when he was arrested by authorities.

As Petey went through airport security, airport officials found a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol, and ammunition in his bag.

In Pablo’s defense, his reps claimed that he forgot that the gun was in his bag. They tried to shine the rapper in a positive light, claiming that he took the firearm from a troubled friend who was threatening to use the weapon.

Apparently the defense was not heard, because the rapper was given an addition charge of possession of a stolen firearm. He was also charged with attempting to take a gun onto an airplane.

The rap star is known for his hit singles “Freek-a-Leek,” “Raise Up” and “Goodies” featuring Ciara.
