When will Jerry Lewis stop being so wackey???

Here are my two favorite quotes:

1. "Lewis' manager told E! Online the confiscated item is actually a hollowed-out prop pistol incapable of firing."

2. "However, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police spokesman Officer Bill Cassell maintains that if that was true, 'it wouldn't be a weapon and we couldn't cite him for carrying a weapon.'"


LAS VEGAS , July 30 (UPI) -- U.S. comic icon Jerry Lewis reportedly was cited for attempting to board a flight from Las Vegas to Detroit with an unloaded gun in his carry-on bag.

E! Online said the 82-year-old performer was briefly detained Friday at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas by police who confiscated his .22-caliber Beretta and cited Lewis for allegedly carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

Lewis' manager told E! Online the confiscated item is actually a hollowed-out prop pistol incapable of firing.

However, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police spokesman Officer Bill Cassell maintains that if that was true, "it wouldn't be a weapon and we couldn't cite him for carrying a weapon."

Lewis was allowed to board his flight following the citation, E! Online said.


Since 1966, Lewis has hosted an annual telethon to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Last year, the telethon raised $63.8 million
