Chewbacca Actor Battles TSA Over Light Saber Cane


North Texas resident and “Star Wars” Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew had a dust-up with Transportation Security Administration agents in Denver when they attempted to confiscate his light saber-shaped cane.

Mayhew was returning to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport from an appearance at Denver Comic Con early this week when TSA agents refused to let Chewie board his plane with one of a kind cane.

The 7-foot, 2-inch tall actor sat in a wheelchair at the airport as he pleaded with the agents and explained that he needed the cane to walk

But it was only after the giant actor posted pics of the incident on his official Twitter account @thewookieroars that the agents relented and let him return to north Texas with his light saber cane.
