(BALTIMORE) — Who would have thought a pair of statement heels could cause a stir at a TSA checkpoint?

According TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein, these gun-shaped platform shoes and bullet-lined bracelets — spotted by agents at Baltimore International Airport — are “less than ideal” for air travel.

Federal authorities delayed the woman at the checkpoint after they noticed her accessories.
