"Jackass" Star Detained at Airport

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Johnny Knoxville jokes that he was worried
airport security brought out a bomb-sniffing dog because he was
carrying one of his movies.

It was a prop grenade, not "Daltry Calhoun" or "Walking
Tall," that caused the concern and could lead to a misdemeanor
charge.

Police at Los Angeles International Airport detained the
"Jackass" star Thursday morning over the grenade, which they say
lacked explosives or a firing pin. He was released in time to make
his flight to Miami, where he blogged that a "wardrobe girl" put
the prop in his luggage after a shoot.

He credited police and took responsibility for not checking his
own bag, adding the zinger that when he saw the bomb squad, he
hoped he "didn't bring any of my films in my backpack!"
