“You did what? What? ‘Oh, yeah, we found a gun.’ So we weren’t exactly arrested, we were detained,” Rose said before the band performed “Out Ta Get Me.”

As he paced the stage and smiled, he continued the story: “They were very nice. They were very nice,” he said. “They were very understanding. You know, it happens — you can forget you had a f—in’ gun. Wasn’t my gun.”

The band’s publicist later confirmed the story to Billboard.

“Yes, this indeed happened on Friday, July 15, as they were crossing the border coming from the Philadelphia tour stop on the 14th,” the rep said, then added that the gun did not belong to any member of the band.
