NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- The Transportation Security Administration said a search of a carry-on bag at a New York airport turned up a hatchet, a folding knife and brass knuckles.
The TSA said the Port Authority Police Department was notified after the three weapons were discovered in a New York man's carry-on luggage Wednesday morning at LaGuardia Airport.
"Weapons including hatchets, knives and brass knuckles are prohibited in carry-on bags, but may be packed in checked baggage. Check local laws as the possession of brass knuckles is illegal in some states, including New York," the TSA said in an Instagram post.
A TSA spokeswoman said the man "left in handcuffs."
