Florida Man arrested for knife hidden in shampoo bottle at TSA checkpoint

knife in shampoo bottle

Florida Man™ is not too bright. Last time I checked, shampoo does not block airport security X-rays. Hiding a knife in a shampoo bottle is just not an effective strategy as Gonzalo Gonzales recently discovered.

From Fox News:

Gonzalo Gonzalez was flying out of the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in North Carolina when TSA officials stopped him at a security checkpoint after noticing something wrong with his bag in the scan.

The 72-year-old man was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon, WFLA reported.

Passengers are allowed to travel with knives and firearms, as long as the weapon is reported and in a checked bag.

As much as we have piloried the security theater of minimum-wage earning sycophants at the airport, it is still not a good idea to try to “get away” with something. For the TSA, ruining your day is the highlight of theirs. Even if the blade in question would have been likely legalized were it not for the harpy-like screeching of the Airline Beverage Server Union.
