Ted Nugent 's wife Shemane apparently shares her husband's interest of firearms.  A source tells ABC News that Mrs. Nugent was arrested Thursday morning at Dallas-Ft. Worth international airport after allegedly attempting to carry a gun through airport security.

The gun was discovered when her carry-on was X-rayed.  Screening of passengers was temporarily suspended while local law enforcement responded.

A spokesman for Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport's Department of Public Safety confirmed that his agency had arrested a person named Shemane Ann Nugent, who was processed through the airport's holding facility before being released during the afternoon.

It's not known if Nugent was with his wife at the time of her arrest, although it seems unlikely.  He played a concert in Tucson, Arizona, on Wednesday and was scheduled to perform in Ramona, California, this evening.

Shemane is Nugent's second wife and has been married to the guitar great since 1989.  The couple have one child together, a son named Rocco .
