Knoxville jokes about grenade
LOS ANGELES - 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.
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 and later blogged that a 'wardrobe girl' put the prop in his luggage.
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!'
