(Newser) – Los Angeles International Airport authorities detained former Jackass star Johnny Knoxville for bringing a grenade in a carry-on bag today, the E! Online reports. The bomb squad determined the grenade was not explosive. Knoxville was issued a citation and permitted to board his plane. “He told police it was a prop from a photo shoot and he completely forgot it was in his bag,” a spokesman says.
