Charges dropped against man arrested for wearing an elaborate wristwatch


Yesterday Cory wrote that "Geoffrey McGann, a southern California artist, was arrested at Oakland airport for wearing an assemblage sculpture/watch he'd made."


[UPDATE: I think this is the watch McGann was arrested for, not the one at the top. I'll bet McGann made them both, though.]

Matthew says:

I thought you might like to know the San Jose Mercury news has posted photos of Mr. McGann's watch.

Mr. McGann's attorney says his client has traveled with the watch before and has never previously been arrested. In fact, Horngrad said the first time McGann traveled with the watch, he showed it to a TSA supervisor at Los Angeles International Airport and the supervisor told him it was OK to wear it on the plane.

All the charges have been dropped.

(This happened to Star Simpson a few years ago, but she didn't get off as easily.)
