Sead Kolasinac’s wife has allegedly been held at a London airport for carrying an illegal weapon, said to be a gun, according to a report from Germany, although when you read beyond the headline you find it was a stun gun – and it wasn’t even ready to use.

Bella Kolasinac reportedly purchased the stun gun last year after she was attacked, along with her husband, Mesut Ozil and his wife, by two men on a scooter. She returned to Germany where she obtained the item legally and had a licence.

The German report states she was detained at the airport when returning to England but offers no further information.

A report from Croatia, however, claims that the stun gun was packed and did not contain batteries.

 

“It was all just a misunderstanding. The stun gun was actually still packaged and didn’t even have batteries in it. Bella managed to prove that she sent emails to the airport to make sure she could bring it in. But when she got the feedback on the plane that it was a device illegal, her cell phone was turned off,” an anonymous source reportedly told the Daily Mail.

Taser laws in the UK states “that possession of a non-lethal taser is a criminal offence and, should the taser be disguised as another object such as a torch, the offence carries a minimum term of imprisonment of 5 years.”

Items that are legal for use in the UK include an axe, crossbow, catapult, machete, and more.
