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!
