Star Wars's Chewbacca Detained For Smuggling Lightsaber On Plane!

Peter Mayhew chewbacca star wars lightsaber cane tsa trouble

Peter Mayhew is unlike most men.

For starters, he's 7'3" and walks with a cane fashioned from a Star Wars lightsaber!!

Also, he's the galaxy's most famous Wookie!!! The 69-year-old Londoner played Chewbacca in every Star Wars film since 1977's A New Hope, but that didn't help him fly from Colorado to Texas last week!

TSA detained the tall, slender actor for questioning at the hands of Lord Vader because they thought he was involved in something shady!!

We realize he famously portrayed a smuggler who made the Kessel Run with Han Solo in less than 12 parsecs, but how did they really think his lightsaber cane (pictured above) was an actual weapon!?!

Peter eventually convinced the agents that he was not the droid Wookie they were looking for, and they cleared him for takeoff.

Hooray!! Call the Ewoks, it's time to celebrate!

    Who is he? He looks like Some Seven Brothers for Seven wives character that was walking on (Curriculum) 8th Ave, and had an story about an poopy phone booth and why it's not nice to lean on things that are not your own, How they get the money is beyond me, they must still be in conversations with Bin ladins family and such with an combination of An black guy in an Chinchilla coat Arabic boss who wanted to talk to me so he poked me on the wrist with an cane hence we had to talk it out and properly quite right in the blond hair we did just that an altercation, so speaking of the Arabic guy and I still didn't have the conversation, why should I their on my nuts. How so many people know me is beyond me, so pick up the cannoli :D Chewbacha not Chewy, not an Bach Ha just me :# And that was scary!

    I'm no one's property don't plan omn being it , the worst part is thru my pshcic ability someone told me it was an FBI agent so I lost respect for them that day it didn't break my arm but the point is it hurt, I told an officer and so what happens after that is beyond me. Omy and they still use people who send 28 paged letter just to say one thing to me like , I love you or something , I hate it, That is why my personal preference is to date within my own race :)
