Let the Wookiee Win: TSA Battles Mayhew Over Lightsaber Cane

Early last week, actor Peter Mayhew — known lovingly as “Chewbacca” — attended Denver Comic Con. As he attempted to return home to north Texas over the weekend, however, the TSA agents in Denver confiscated his lightsaber cane.

Mayhew pleaded with the agents, saying he needed the cane to walk, but it was only after Mayhew took to Twitter that the TSA agents relented and let him continue on through Security.
