(LOS ANGELES) -- Raising Hope and Deadwood actor Garret Dillahunt is a very lucky man. The 46-year-old unknowingly passed through security at a local airport while in possession of a small knife.
Apparently, Dillahunt's guilt got the best of him and he tweeted a photo of the little silver knife he accidently carried through the airport. He said, "Oops, Walked right through airport security with this little number."
Fellow actor Rainn Wilson responded with a post on his own Twitter page, writing, "Arrest this tweeter!" Dillahunt answered Wilson saying it was a simple mistake and that he's "a whittler, plain and simple."
However, now that he has come clean, Dillahunt jokingly admits, "I foresee a lifetime of hassles by the TSA. A sacrifice I am willing to make to ensure the safety of our skies."
