Pierce Brosnan has been stopped by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents at the Burlington International Airport in Vermont for trying to board a flight carrying a knife.
The local police department said Pierce Brosnan, 62, was allowed to continue his journey after the issue was resolved.
The James Bond actor was reportedly embarrassed and angry when the knife was taken away by agents.
TSA rules state that sharp objects such as knives, box cutters and scissors longer than 4in must be stored in checked baggage.
Lieutenant Shawn Burke, from the Burlington Police Department, said airport authorities told him about Pierce Brosnan’s encounter with TSA officials.
He said the actor “was encountered by TSA at one of their checkpoints” and was allowed to continue his journey after the issue was resolved.
