Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew ran into some trouble recently when he tried to go through an airport with a light saber-shaped cane.

The TSA agents were wary about letting Mayhew through security with the cane and were close to confiscating it despite his assurances that he needed it to walk. As he sat in a wheelchair, he posted pictures of the incident to his Twitter account, and once agents saw that, they relented.

The 7’2″ actor was on his way home from the Denver Comic Con at the time. He later tweeted, “In Dallas. Thank you to @AmericanAir for checking on me. Problem was all @TSA. I’m a million-miler on American and they are a class act.”

The incident gained some notice on Twitter, including from astronomer Ray Sanders.

    Well, so far on this website, we have articles about the police arresting a wannabe rapper and now the TSA went after Chewbacca. I will say this until I die. There are so many high value targets in the US that if there really were terrorists actively seeking our demise, then we would have real incidents ever day.

    The average american is in more danger of being robbed or killed by a gang member than they are of being attacked by a terrorist. Yes, I understand there are terrorists in this world, but the threat is greatly exaggerated. In the “Home of the Brave”, fear is ruling the day. Fear is killing us.

    There is a reason why Christ told us not to fear.


      Christ who????
