Passenger stopped over gun-shaped stilettos
Replica firearms not allowed in airports
BALTIMORE, Md. – Airport security officials at Baltimore-Washington International Airport stopped a woman who had gun-shaped platform heels and bracelets with replica bullets.
The Transportation Safety Administration tweeted photos of the shoes and bracelets on Monday, reminding passengers of the rules.
"Friendly reminder from @TSA: Realistic replica firearms and ammunition are not permitted past TSA checkpoints," a TSA spokesperson tweeted.
The woman had the items in a carry-on bag, the spokesperson told TIME.
The passenger was told she could put them in a checked bag, but she ended up ditching them so she wouldn't miss her flight, TIME reported.
