The rapper was attempting to pass through security checkpoints on Friday evening (March 9), when security found a two-shot .38 Derringer pistol in his bag.
Juelz fled the airport in a taxi and remained on the loose until about 1 a.m. this morning.
The rapper finally surrendered to police and was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
Juelz may have more legal problems to deal with now, since he was booked on an unspecified federal warrant.
Juelz’ incident at the airport caused him to miss a performance at The Grand Nightclub in San Francisco over the weekend, prompting an angry response from the promoter.
“It’s 2018 — I don’t know how he thought that would be OK,” said the promoter of the event.
