Someone might want to tell Jerry Lewis to stop watching those Oceans films.

On Tuesday, the 82-year old entertainer and one time professional sidekick to Dean Martin (who starred in the original Oceans 11) was cited for trying to take a gun onto a plane headed from Las Vegas to Detroit.

Las Vegas police say they confiscated a gun belonging to Lewis from his carry-on luggage. Lewis was cited for carrying an unloaded concealed weapon at the Las Vegas Airport.

The actor's manager says the handgun is a hollowed-out prop gun that Lewis sometimes twirls during his show. She told the AP that the gun couldn't fire.

The rep adds that Lewis didn't know that the gun was in his bag along with other props. However Vegas police officer Bill Cassell said, "it wouldn't be a weapon and we couldn't cite him for carrying a weapon," if the gun had been merely a prop.
