Pa. (Supreme Court) Justice Pays Fine for Carrying Knife
Advertisements [?]
HARRISBURG, Pa. -- A state Supreme Court justice said Friday he paid a $750 federal fine for trying to sneak a pocketknife on board an airplane last month.

"I just wanted to get this matter behind me," Justice Thomas G. Saylor Jr. said. "Really, my only comment is ... I did a really dumb thing, which I obviously regret."

Saylor and his wife were going through a checkpoint for a flight from Harrisburg International Airport when screeners found a Swiss Army-type knife attached to his key chain, police said.

The knife was later found in a shoe inside his carry-on luggage when Saylor went back through the screening area a second time, police said.

Saylor said the knife was a gift from a friend that he did not want to give up.
