Amusing news today about a member of the band Polyphonic Spree, coming home from a gig with a microphone in his bag that was mistaken for a pipe bomb that shut down an entire terminal of the Dallas Fort Worth airport (completely unbeknownst to him). When he arrived home, he was surrounded by armed agents ready to take him into custody, but his TiVo saved the day.
Teasley explained that the item in question was not a pipe bomb, but a microphone.
"I told them we had just used it when we were on Craig Kilborn's show," he said. "I still had it on my TiVo, so I was like, `Come watch it with me.' After they figured out I was telling the truth, they were pretty cool. I was talking to them about music. But thank God for TiVo."
