Police cited veteran funnyman Jerry Lewis for allegedly concealing an unloaded weapon in his carryon luggage as the 82-year-old was preparing to fly from Las Vegas to Detroit, Las Vegas policeman Bill Cassell tells the Associated Press.

Lewis's manager, Claudia Marghilano, called the handgun a hollowed-out prop gun for Lewis's show. It could not fire, she added, also claiming her client did not know the item was in his bag.

Cassell, however, said a prop gun "wouldn't be a weapon, and we couldn't cite him for carrying a weapon."
