Johnny Knoxville was detained yesterday at LAX after an inert grenade was found in his carry-on bag. The AP reports:
After security screeners spotted the grenade in the “Jackass” star’s carry-on luggage, a bomb squad determined it lacked a firing pin or explosive. Police say Knoxville was later released and allowed to board an American Airlines flight to Miami.
Knoxville, whose real name is Philip John Clapp, told officers the grenade was a prop he forgot to remove from his bag, Airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.
Shit. All it would’ve took was one person, nay, patriot, to say “I think he’s speaking that Al Qaeda talk,” and Johnny Knoxville would have his testicles attached to car battery in Syria as we speak. Explain to me how that wouldn’t have been a win/win for everybody. You can’t.
