DALLAS – Actor Judge Reinhold has apologized to police, saying he’s embarrassed that he was arrested after a confrontation with security at Dallas Love Field Airport.

Police arrested the 59-year-old actor Thursday afternoon on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge after he refused a Transportation Security Administration screening. It is punishable by a fine of up to $500.

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.

Reinhold, who lives in Little Rock, Arkansas, appeared in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and “Beverly Hills Cop.”
