The Press of Atlantic City reports Angela Ricci of Beverly Hills was going through a checkpoint Saturday when the knife was found and confiscated.

Ricci told authorities that she had not used the bag in more than a year and forgot the knife was in it. She was cited for unlawful possession of a weapon in a secured area and released on her own recognizance.

The incident did not disrupt airport operations.
