The Transportation Security Administration stopped actor Peter Mayhew, who plays Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" movies, at the Denver International Airport. Mayhew, who is more than 7 feet tall, was traveling with a cane shaped like a replica laser sword. "Because of the unusual weight of the passenger’s cane, a security officer alerted a supervisor," the TSA said in a statement. "Less than five minutes later the passenger and cane were cleared to travel."
