Chewbacca actor stopped at airport
The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents in Denver briefly stopped Star Wars franchise actor Peter Mayhew recently as he was boarding a flight with a cane shaped like one of science-fiction’s most iconic weapons. Airport officials inspected the huge walking stick before allowing Mayhew on the plane. Mayhew who is about 7 feet tall tweeted “Giant man need giant cane”.
“Because of the unusual weight of the passenger’s cane, a security officer alerted a supervisor. Less than five minutes later the passenger and cane were cleared to travel. Social media played no role in the determination,” the TSA said.
