Golden Girl Causes Terrorist Scare In Boston

GOLDEN GIRLS star BEA ARTHUR sparked a security scare at Boston's Logan International Airport earlier this week (begs23AUG04) when she tried to board a flight with a pocketknife in her handbag.

The actress, 81, was about to board a CAPE AIR flight when a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent discovered the offensive article in her belongings, which is strictly forbidden on airplanes since the September 11th (01) attacks.

A fellow passenger says, "She started yelling that it wasn't hers and said 'The terrorists put it there'. She kept yelling about the 'terrorists, the terrorists, the terrorists'."

After the knife was confiscated by TSA officials, the funnywoman pulled out a keyring from her bag and told the agent it belonged to the "terrorists", before throwing it at them.

As she boarded the plane, the EMMY-winning star told the TSA employees, "We're all doomed."

A spokeswoman for Cape Air says, "Miss Arthur was cracking jokes and was a real character."
