(Liz Klimas) The TSA announced it would halt its proposal to let small knives and golf clubs go through security onto planes as carry-on items last week after months of backlash. So, it most likely would come as no surprise that a large, light saber-shaped cane got special inspection — even if it did belong to the actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies.
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 film’s most iconic weapons.
