Judge Reinhold played a police officer in Beverly Hills Cop (and more importantly Brad in Fast Times at Ridgemont High).
Despite his law enforcement background as Detective Billy Rosewood alongside Eddie Murphy, he was arrested yesterday at the Dallas Love Field TSA checkpoint,
for disorderly conduct after “causing a disturbance.” The actor was reportedly being uncooperative when Transportation Security Administration officials were patting him down, and refused to submit to a screening.
He “took his shirt off and used foul language” when informed that his bag alarmed and that he’d be required to go through a secondary screening.
Here’s Reinhold handcuffed at the checkpoint.
And here’s Judge Reinhold being taken out of a police vehicle into Dallas County Jail.
CBS News reports that his disorderly conduct charge is “punishable by a fine of up to $500.” So I’m not even sure what the point is here.
But it’s not as embarrassing as being being caught in the bathroom by Phoebe Cates in the most famous scene from Fast Times.
