NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A man was arrested at LaGuardia Airport by Port Authority police for trying to bring a throwing star onto a plane in his carry-on luggage, according to the TSA.

Knives are allowed only in checked bags on any planes by federal law, but New York law bans the possession of “Kung Fu stars” and “shirken,” a Japanese name for the weapon.

TSA found the blade in the x-ray machine during security screening.
