Apple CEO Steve Jobs was reportedly stopped at Japan’s Kansai International Airport because a security scan detected weapons in his luggage. The weapons were Ninja throwing stars that Jobs was bringing back to the U.S. According to SPA Magazine, Jobs was returning home from a vacation in July when the incident happened. The magazine cited unnamed sources at the airport and transportation ministry for giving them the information.
Jobs reportedly said that it wouldn’t make sense to hijack his own plane, but airport officials threw the Ninja stars in the garbage.
Kansai airport spokesman, Takeshi Uno, confirmed that a passenger was stopped in July for trying to take the Ninja throwing stars on his private jet, but declined to confirm that it was Jobs.
