DALLAS — Actor Judge Reinhold has apologized to police and says he’s “embarrassed” that he was taken to jail after a confrontation with security agents at Dallas Love Field Airport.

The 59-year-old actor was arrested Thursday afternoon on a misdemeanour disorderly conduct charge.

Reinhold apologized after his release from jail Friday. He says he walked through a TSA scanner but refused to let agents examine his backpack, which contained DVDs and CDs.

He indicated that his “self-righteous indignation'” was connected to an adverse reaction he had to medication for a respiratory infection earlier in the week. He was released from jail early Friday.

Dallas police arrested Reinhold after Transportation Security Administration workers reported he refused to submit to screening at a security checkpoint.


Reinhold was featured in 1980s movies including “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and “Beverly Hills Cop.”
