After actor Rainn Wilson posted 'Arrest this tweeter!' in response to his tweet, Garret Dillahunt explains, 'It was a misTAKE, all right? I'm a whittler, plain and simple.'
"Raising Hope" star Garret Dillahunt has managed to walk through security at a local airport with a small knife. On Monday, June 27, the actor playing Burt Chance on the FOX sitcom posted a photo of the knife on Twitter and wrote, "Oops. Walked right through airport security with this little number."
Garret was not arrested for bringing the banned item into the airport, but fellow actor Rainn Wilson thought otherwise. In his response to Garret's tweet, Rainn wrote on his own page, "Arrest this tweeter!" In return, Garret explained, "If I ever get outta this there will be a reckoning. It was a misTAKE, all right? I'm a whittler, plain and simple."
The actor husband of Michelle Hurd added in another tweet, "I'm not psychic...but I foresee a lifetime of hassles by the TSA. A sacrifice I am willing to make to ensure the safety of our skies." He deleted the tweet hours later after laughing at reports about his snafu as tweeting, "Took a little snooze...what's goin on? What? 'Hunting knife'? 'Smuggled'? 'Gloating'?....BWAAAAHAAAHAAAHAAAHAAA!"
