Johnny Knoxville’s unarmed grenade not a hit at LAX

Professional jackass Johnny Knoxville must not have realized there weren’t any cameras around. While trying to board a 7 AM flight from Los Angeles to Miami on Thursday, the TSA detained the actor comedian (what is he, anyway?). The authorities suspected that he had a hand grenade in his carry-on. Worse, it probably wasn’t in a clear plastic bag.

The LAPD Bomb Squad was summoned to address the situation, and they determined the hand-grenade had no explosives or firing pin,” according to a report on MSNBC. Knoxville claims that the device was a prop from a photo shoot and that he’d forgotten it in his bag.

Maybe he should stick to traveling by shopping cart; the rules aren’t quite so strict.
