Wayne Coyne accidentally brought a grenade to Oklahoma City Airport

“Sorry Sorry Sorry!! Everyone that was inconvenienced because of my grenade at OKC airport!!” – @waynecoyne

What kind of dumbass packs a freaking grenade in his carry-on … and accidentally tries to take it onto a plane? Answer: Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne. And he shut down an Oklahoma City airport in the process.

The grenade wasn’t live — thankfully — but according to the police report, Coyne still accidentally packed it in his bag on November 10 and triggered an alarm at the TSA checkpoint at Will Rogers airport … like a dumbass.

Needless to say, TSA freaked … and shut down the terminal while officers frantically tried to figure out how to handle the situation.

According to reports, Coyne was flying to LAX to catch a preview of the new Flaming Lips musical “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” — and told police he was given the dead grenade at a party as a joke.

Shocker, the grenade reportedly resulted in several missed flights … and lots of wasted money — but once TSA determined it was harmless, they let Coyne go. -[TMZ]

To be fair, maybe he missed the grenade because it was hidden inside one of his oversized hulk hands? He did apologize.

UPDATE: He explains the whole story to Pitchfork.
