Chewbacca Actor Peter Mayhew, Battles TSA Airport Agents Over his "Light Saber" Cane

Peter Mayhew had a dust-up with TSA agents in Denver over his light saber-shaped 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 ComicCon when TSA agents refused to let Chewie board his plane with his one-of-a-kind cane.

The actor, who is 7 feet, 2 inches tall, 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,  that the agents relented and let him return to North Texas with his light saber cane.
