The TSA Doesn’t Like Chewbacca or His Lightsaber

Even Han Solo’s best friend can’t get through airport security without some serious scrutiny. Peter Mayhew, who is best known for being the man inside the Chewbacca, was given some extra attention from the Transportation Security Administration over his lightsaber cane.

Apparently, they were quite concerned about the safety of the plane with Mayhew and his not-a-real lightsaber aboard. Initial media reports said that fans pressured the TSA to let Mayhew and his cane through security after a lengthy check but the TSA denies that was the case.
