Transportation Security Administration agents in Denver briefly stopped ‘‘Star Wars’’ franchise actor Peter Mayhew recently as he was boarding a flight with a cane shaped like one of science-fiction’s most iconic weapons.

Airport officials say they wanted to inspect the huge walking stick before allowing Mayhew, who is more than 7 feet tall, on the plane.

TSA agents hard at work trying to figure out how to confiscate Johnny a new toy.

4 I think it's Napoleon complex. I mean, Peter's cane is almost taller than that agent.

5 The problem was they wanted to turn it on and chop things in half.
Took so long because they couldn't.
