Flaming Lips singer regrets fake grenade at airport


The frontman of the rock band The Flaming Lips, who attempted to take a replica grenade on to a domestic flight, prompting a security “lockdown” at Oklahoma City airport, has admitted he had “not quite thought” about the possible consequences of his actions.

Wayne Coyne set off a security alert on 10 November when he put his baggage through an airport X-ray machine. He said it was a “dumb accident” that he had packed the grenade.
