Johnny Knoxville Briefly Detained at LAX for Carrying Fake Grenade


Johnny Knoxville


Johnny Knoxville tells officers that he forgets to remove his fake grenade from his luggage, but authorities will still decide whether to charge him or not.

"Jackass" actor Johnny Knoxville was on Thursday morning, January 15 briefly detained at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) for bringing a fake grenade. He was about to board an American Airlines flight for Miami when security screeners noticed the prohibited item inside his luggage.

However, after a careful investigation bomb squad determined the grenade "lacked a firing pin or explosive," the Associated Press reported. And so, Knoxville was freed and allowed to board his plane.

And though Knoxville testified that the grenade was a prop he forgot to remove from his luggage, prosecutors will still be considering whether to officially charge him with bringing a prohibited item into a secure area of the airport, which is a misdemeanor, or not. At time of writing, the incident is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.
