The wife of outspoken rocker Ted Nugent could face a fine for carrying a gun in a bag at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

D/FW Airport's Department of Public Safety confirmed Shemane Nugent was processed through the airport holding facility Thursday and released.

Sources told ABC News the gun was discovered when her carry-on was X-rayed at security.

It's unclear if Nugent was with her, or if she had a handgun permit with her.

Permitted guns are supposed to be in checked bags.
