Actor Judge Reinhold was arrested Thursday afternoon, according to media reports. The actor, known for “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “Beverly Hills Cop” and other high-profile film roles, was reportedly arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct at the Dallas Love Field airport.
“Reinhold, 59, was selected by Transportation Security Administration agents for a random pat-down around 2 p.m., according to an official at the city-owned airport, and he was not happy about it,” the Dallas Morning News reports. “He was told he could be taken to a private screening room, but refused — and then became belligerent, officials say. At that point, Dallas police were called in.”
Reinhold reportedly became antagonistic again after officers tried to calm him down, prompting the arrest.
“Dallas attorney Steve Stodghill, who’s representing the actor, said Reinhold successfully passed through the TSA scanner and was stopped only after his bag set off an alarm,” the paper reports. “Stodghill said that’s when TSA agents asked to pat down Reinhold, who didn’t understand why he needed to be searched after he’d gone through the scanner without incident.”
