Chew­bacca ac­tor stopped at air­port

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

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.
