"It was an actual grenade that was now missing its explosive parts and painted gold. I just threw this gold grenade in my bag and had not quite thought about it," Coy told Pitchfork.
Coy later tweeted an apology to people who had been inconvenienced by the TSA lockdown but not too sorry. He later told Pitchfork: "I would agree that it was stupid of me, but I don't feel wholly responsible if people missed their flights. I'm not making the rules. It's not illegal for me to have that grenade with me."
It is worth noting that hand grenades are on the TSA's list of items that are prohibited in carry-on bags. - via CelebrityAccess
