should Knoxville be charged?

LOS ANGELES – Authorities detained Johnny Knoxville on Thursday for allegedly bringing an inert grenade into Los Angeles International Airport. After security screeners spotted the grenade in the "Jackass" star's carry-on luggage, a bomb squad determined it lacked a firing pin or explosive. Police say Knoxville was later released and allowed to board an American Airlines flight to Miami.
Prosecutors will decide whether to charge the 38-year-old with bringing a prohibited item into a secure area of the airport, a misdemeanor. An e-mail to Knoxville's publicist was not immediately returned.
Knoxville, whose real name is Philip John Clapp, told officers the grenade was a prop he forgot to remove from his bag, Airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.

  • With maybe a misdemeanor. i don't think it should be that big of a deal b/c it wasn't capable of hurting anyone and he may have forgotten. I think it was probably done on purpose for shits and giggles. But if they would charge any other man then they should charge him too. Celebs don't get special treatment

  • Did you not read the question, he was in a secure area at an airport with a grenade without
    a pin, and said it was a prop - - - it wasn't about speeding. I'd go to gitmo and average guy would
    too. Pass the wine bottle

  • Amandal1021 said maybe with a misdemeanor, who knows. I'd suspect under homeland
    security laws that's a felony. With money, attorneys, it's dropped. If it were anyone else you'd
    be off to gitmo after a thorough search. Since he has attorney's pass the wine bottle and take
    an extra swig for the guy that can afford em.
