As Curt Schilling and his family were making their way through security at Logan Airport this morning, his 12-year-old son, Grant, exclaimed about a fake grenade in his bag.

But not until 15 TSA agents are on their walkie talkies. Police show up and everyone in line is shoed 50 yards away. Police, TSA could not..— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) November 22, 2014
Have been cooler once they realized what was happening.— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) November 22, 2014
TSA took the former Red Sox pitcher and his family into a private room so they could explain what happened, according to NECN, and there were no delays.
The incident was one in a string of disturbances Saturday at Logan Airport, including one where a nude man fell through the ceiling of a ladies’ bathroom before running out and allegedly biting an elderly man on the ear on Saturday, according to authorities.
