• TSA confiscates brass knuckles from passenger's carry-on at Sea-Tac


    SEATAC, Wash. - A Transportation Security Administration spokesperson tweeted a picture Wednesday morning of brass knuckles.

    The weapon was found in a passenger's carry-on bag at Sea-Tac Airport by a TSA agent on Tuesday, according to the tweet from @TSAmedia_Lorie.

    For safety and security, the TSA prohibits certain items in carry-on and checked bags.
