Jackass star Johnny Knoxville was detained by LAX security after a grenade was discovered in his carry-on bag. The Los Angeles bomb squad was called and determined that while the grenade was real, it lacked explosives and a firing pin. Knoxville claimed it was a prop from a movie and that he forgot it was in his bag. He was cited for carrying a “prohibited item” and was subsequently allowed to board his flight.
In my opinion, airport security is too strict. First they don’t let you bring your own soda and now they won’t allow grenades in your carry-on. What’s next? No Uzis under your black trench coat or knives hidden in your boots? Bunch of fascists.
