The guy married to Toya Carter — star of BET’s “Toya: A Family Affair” — has finally been released from custody after bringing a gun to an airport on Sunday … and he hopes to be reunited with his firearm as soon as possible.
TMZ spoke with Mickey “Memphitz” Wright … who went in front of a judge in Clayton County, GA this afternoon … after TSA agents at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport discovered the Desert Eagle pistol in his carry-on bag Monday.
Wright tells us the judge was “very understanding” of his explanation — that he had placed the gun in a backpack weeks ago and simply forgot about it — and released him on bail.
Wright says he was “completely shocked” when TSA agents discovered the gun in his bag — but tells us, “I had my license and [the judge] did me right and let me out.”
He adds, “The TSA did their job … I just hate that it was me because I’m about positivity and motivation.”
When asked if he will ask the court to return the gun, Wright tells us, “Yes, i want my gun back” … but insists the next time he travels, he’ll leave the piece at home.
