London: `Twilight` star Ashley Greene and her singer boyfriend Joe Jonas were almost arrested at an Abu Dhabi airport after the latter accidentally left a set of knives in his carry-on luggage.

The couple, who have been dating for about four months, were stopped by security after the newly-bought cheese knives were found in the 21-year-old `Camp Rock` star`s bag, reported a website.

Greene said, "We were going from the Middle East to New York, so there was tons of security, tons of screenings. We got through one, surprisingly enough.

"The second one we got to and they stopped and looked at us with these really stern faces. They were like, `What`s in your bag?` I look at Joe and there are these flashbacks of this knife set we got. They were cheese cutting knives. I look
at Joe and I`m like, `Did you leave the knives in the bag?` He`s like, `Whoopsies.`

"Whoopsies doesn`t cut it. We were going to get arrested!"

After explaining their mistake, the couple were allowed to stow their knives in the plane`s main baggage area.

"It was embarrassing," Greene said in an interview to US talk show host George Lopez.

The interview marked the first time the 23-year-old actress has confirmed she is dating Joe.

"I have been in Peru, I was in Columbia, Argentina, Chile and then we just got back from Abu Dhabi. I was there for pleasure - my boyfriend was on tour and I had some time off so I went out to support him. He`s really sweet," she said.
