It's like a poorly written episode of Homeland!

TSA caught musician Wayne Coyne yesterday smuggling a grenade past the security checkpoint at Oklahoma City's Will Rogers Airport!!

A GRENADE!!

We knew The Flaming Lips were wacky — they made a six hour song? Oh, cute! — but sneaking grenades onto planes is most certainly not charming!

It's dangerous! And because of his actions, the terminal was temporarily shut down and who knows how that affected OkC travelers!

Delayed or canceled flights before Thanksgiving means people flying home for the holiday spend less time with their loved ones!! What a terrible ripple effect Wayne's actions may have caused!

At least the singer knows he was in the wrong. He posted a quick apology on Twitter along with a picture of him at the airport (above).

He said:

The apology is sincere, but still we cannot fathom Wayne ever thought grenades and airplanes were a wise combination!

It's unclear right now what legal consequences he may suffer.

    Y'know…you could have told the rest of the story yourself, but I guess you just wanted to be part of the problem. Here's what wasn't told:

    Coyne, of Oklahoma City, was on a trip to Los Angeles on Nov. 10 when a TSA agent spotted a hand-grenade in his bag at a security checkpoint.
    The agent closed the checkpoint and began protocols for dealing with a live bomb. The TSA explosives expert was not on duty at the time but quickly arrived and determined the grenade, painted gold, had been deactivated and posed no threat. According to police reports, Coyne said the grenade, which had a hole in the bottom, was a gift given to him at a party in Arkansas.

    He should have had a massive beating from all of the other, relevant people whom he caused to be delayed and put out due to his pretentious, i'm the only one that matters, actions. What a joke, fucking doosh. Present or not, any retard knows you can't bring the shit on board, mailing it would have cost him 5 bucks.

    Hope he has to pay for any and all flight change fees, motels, car rentals, etc. caused by his poor judgment.
