You've seen bedazzled phone cases and some with unique designs, but how about a case shaped as a weapon?

Security at Stansted Airport in London stopped a passenger on Tuesday after they saw what looked like a gun in his back pocket. It was actually an iPhone case.

According to The Evening Standard, Essex police said the man could be charged with a public order offense or with carrying an imitation firearm in a public space.

The Essex police tweeted a photo of the gun-shaped iPhone case:

"This is what was in the back pocket...An #iPhone case. Someone decided to put themselves in such a situation today."
