Pierce Brosnan, no one's favorite James Bond apart from a few people who played too much Goldeneye 007 on the N64 as kids, has been stopped at an airport in Vermont for carrying a knife. A Burlington police lieutenant tells the AP that Brosnan was "encountered by TSA at one of their checkpoints" because of the knife, and eventually boarded the plane without further incident.

It is currently unclear whether the knife was hidden in Brosnan's shoe, like the one that nearly killed Sean Connery at the end of From Russia With Love — a film made in a time when you could more or less carry a bazooka onto an international flight without repercussion. Now that the TSA has taken down a legendary MI6 agent once, you can expect it to soon start checking your rings for cameras and your watches for laser beams.
