TV celebrity Montel Williams was cited at Mitchell International Airport on Tuesday for carrying a pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana, the Milwaukee County sheriff’s office reported.

Williams, 54, was issued the citation for possession of drug paraphernalia after being caught with the pipe by Transportation Security Administration agents while going through a security checkpoint, a news release from the sheriff’s office says.

Williams paid the $484 forfeiture and was released to resume his travel plans, according to the release.

Williams, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, has advocated for the legalization of marijuana for medical use and has said he uses the drug to ease the effects of his condition.

He has joined other medical marijuana advocates to implore Congress to allow him and other sick people to use the drug without fear of prosecution.

The former talk show host also founded the Montel Williams MS Foundation.
