Zonnique Pulins, stepdaughter of rapper T.I., was arrested and charged for carrying a gun at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Thursday.

The 20-year-old, whose mother is Tiny Harris, was taken into custody for carrying a weapon or long gun through security.

Pullins had a .380 Ruger semi-automatic pistol in her purse. The gun was detected by an X-ray tech when she tried to go through the security checkpoint at the airport, according to a police report obtained by PEOPLE.

She was released at 2:09 a.m. on Friday.

Neither T.I. nor Harris have commented on their child’s arrest.

However, Pullins’ cousin Tamara Whitaker spoke out on Instagram following Zonnique’s release.

“Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what’s needed,” Whitaker captioned Pullins’ mugshot.

In her post, she continued: “With the late shootings and death of a pop star all in Orlando just this week, I think it’s very appropriate that she carries a gun just not to the airport maybe lol. But my girl is home and good.”
