North Texas resident and “Star Wars” Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew had a dust-up with Transportation Security Administration agents in Denver when they attempted to confiscate his light saber-shaped cane.


Mayhew was returning to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport from an appearance at Denver Comic Con early this week when TSA agents refused to let Chewie board his plane with one of a kind cane.


The 7-foot, 2-inch tall actor sat in a wheelchair at the airport as he pleaded with the agents and explained that he needed the cane to walk
