TV prankster Johnny Knoxville was detained for allegedly bringing a fake grenade into an airport. Security screeners at Los Angeles International Airport detected the grenade in the Jackass star’s hand luggage, ananova.com reports.

It was investigated by a bomb squad who found it did not have a firing pin or explosives. Knoxville told police that the grenade was a prop he forgot to remove from his bag, airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.

The 38-year-old, whose real name is Philip John Clapp, was later released and allowed to board an American Airlines flight to Miami, the website adds.
