007 Pierce Brosnan was recently stopped at Vermont Airport for carrying a knife in his luggage. It seems that the British actor was discovered to have a hunting knife in one of his bags on Tuesday. This is why airport security had to conduct a detailed search on him, that had to include taking him to a private room in order to finalize the search process.
Eye witnesses have said that the actor was absolutely furious about the entire issue. Initially, Brosnan was asked to remove his belt, so that he could pass through the metal detector. Then, when the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents told him he had to accompany them to a private room, he allegedly said he couldn’t believe they were doing that to him, according to Daily Mail.
The entire search process did not last long, and the actor was free to go, without his hunting knife obviously. However, taking a knife on a plane was a clearly misguided decision from Brosnan’s part, thus proving that he clearly is no 007 in real life. The British actor must have some experience in the entire airport protocol, given his international career, so it is quite odd that he did not think ahead and remove the knife. Thankfully, the entire situation ended without any consequences for the actor, as confirmed by Burlington Lt. Shawn Burke.
The actor was traveling to Detroit with his 14-year-old son, Paris, and they were both on their way after the unfortunate incident. They are clearly not going to forget this trip too soon, as having a close encounter with the TSA agents is not something that anybody forgets too easily, even if it is less than an hour long and even if you have played James Bond on the big screen.
It seems that the TSA makes no concessions, even for Hollywood stars and that airport security is pretty hard to outsmart. It is not known whether or not Pierce Brosnan had put the hunting knife in his bag intentionally or not, but he will clearly be more attentive with the things he puts in his luggage next time he gets on a plane.
