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.
