BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police say former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has been stopped at a Vermont airport security checkpoint because of a knife he was carrying.

Burlington Police Department Lt. Shawn Burke says airport authorities told him about Brosnan’s encounter with Transportation Security Administration agents. He says Brosnan “was encountered by TSA at one of their checkpoints” and was allowed to proceed after the issue was resolved.

He said Tuesday that police wouldn’t be called to Burlington International Airport for such an incident and they don’t have a report on it. A TSA agent said he hadn’t heard about it.

The Irish-American actor played secret agent 007 in movies including “GoldenEye” and “Die Another Day.” He also starred in “The Thomas Crown Affair” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.” His publicist hasn’t returned messages seeking comment.
