Judge Reinhold Arrested At Dallas Airport (Video)

Actor Judge Reinhold was released from jail after being arrested for disorderly conduct at Love Field Airport in Dallas (video below).

Reinhold was arrested after causing a scene at the Dallas airport on Dec. 8, during an attempted pat down by Transport Security Administration agents, according to TMZ.

Police were called to the airport in the early afternoon after Reinhold allegedly refused a random security pat down from TSA agents and became belligerent, WFAA reports.

The actor, known for roles in 1980s movies "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and "Beverly Hills Cop," among other projects, reportedly became angry when TSA agents informed him that he had been chosen for a random pat down.

Agents offered to perform the screening in a private room, but he still refused, according to Fox News. Reinhold then allegedly took his shirt off and used explicit language directed toward the agents.

When police arrived, Reinhold was arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to the Lew Sterrett Justice Center. He spoke to reporters as he was escorted into the jail, saying, "Thanks for the exposure guys. Glad you're here."

The actor's attorney, Steve Stodghill, said Reinhold had cleared a security body scanner, but TSA agents needed to further screen him after his bag raised an alarm. Stodghill told The Dallas Morning News that he did not think his client should have needed to be patted down after successfully going through the security scanner.

Photos following the actor's arrest show him smiling as police escorted him to jail.
