An actor known for his role on the Disney Channel series “Wizards of Waverly Place” was arrested today for allegedly bringing a loaded handgun to Los Angeles International Airport. Variety cites police saying David Henrie was arrested.

Henrie, 29, played Justin Russo on the Disney series and is also known for playing Ted Mosby’s future son Luke on “How I Met Your Mother.”

“Variety confirmed with an LAX public information officer that Henrie was arrested at about 9:05 a.m. on Monday at Terminal 2 at LAX after TSA officers went through his baggage and found the firearm,” the publication reports. “He was booked into LAPD Pacific Division Jail and has since been released with a court date.”

The report notes that Henrie later apologized on Twitter, indicating that he “unintentionally” brought the gun, which he says he legally owns and which is registered in his name, to the airport.

He wrote on Twitter: “I am so sorry for any trouble it caused but I am appreciative of TSA’s efforts in implementing the safety laws that are in place to protect our beautiful country. More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened.”


  1. How do you “unintentionally” pack a gun in your luggage? What a dope.

    • Every time I hear about this, it makes me wonder. 1) You don’t know where your loaded gun is? What an idiot! 2) You don’t clean out your bag before packing it? What an idiot! 3) You don’t notice how heavy your bag is before you start packing? What an idiot! Seriously, how does this happen?!?
