"Jerry Lewis has escaped firearms charges over a gun discovered in his carry-on bag at Las Vegas airport.
Security seized the .22-calibre Beretta from the 82-year-old comic in July, and he was accused of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.
However, Judge Karen Bennett-Haron yesterday dismissed the charge after lawyers agreed to let the comedian off without a fine.
Mr Lewis's lawyer, Ross Goodman, said the quick resolution was 'a good result for a great guy'.
Lewis's manager initially said the unloaded weapon was a prop used on stage, although Lewis later said it was a gift given during his annual telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which he had forgotten was in his bag."
It's a Mitzvah!
