Thank God she didn't try to bring any hairspray or over 3.4 ounces of liquid!

The 26-year-old model, perhaps better known to many as Playboy Playmate of the Month for July 2010, was arrested Monday and charged with carrying a firearm in a place prohibited by law.

A police report says McLaughlin, who was heading to Los Angeles, told officers the gun belonged to her boyfriend. She claims she didn't know it was in her bag. She also has a permit to carry a concealed weapon but didn't have it on her.
