An Adams County woman was cited by police at a Baltimore airport after she tried to take a stun gun on her New Year's Day flight.

The Transportation Security Administration said an officer staffing a checkpoint X-ray machine at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport spotted the pink stun gun in the woman's carry-on bag.

The stun gun was designed to look like a smartphone with a fake keypad and fake screen, and had a button marked "stun," according to a TSA news release.

TSA said it contacted the Maryland Transportation Authority police who responded, confiscated the device, and cited the McSherrystown woman on a state weapons charge.

Her name was not released.

She was disarmed and cited, then permitted to catch her flight to Los Angeles.
