I've heard some unbeweavable tales in my day but what happened to actress Gabrielle Union at an airport earlier this week topped just about everything.

Airport security gave her a patdown after her  "weave got 'flagged.' "

That's right. That long, gorgeous, flowing mane of hers got her detained at the airport, the New York Daily News reported today.

"No lie. TSA required a hair patdown," she added. "If human hair and thread sets off the body scanner, a lot of folks just ended up on the 'watch list.' "

It all ended well though. Union was eventually allowed to catch her flight, hair tracks and all.

"Hopefully my weave doesn't cause turbulence," she joked on Twitter. "It's clearly very powerful."

Humph, glad she could laugh about it. A lot of women get real upset when you start messing around in their hair.
