Judge Reinhold

Summary: Actor Judge Reinhold is thoroughly embarrassed after becoming irrational with TSA personnel and being stuck behind bars for the night.

Actor Judge Reinhold was released from jail after becoming irate at Dallas Love Field Airport personnel. TSA officials wanted to subject Reinhold to a pat-down but he refused, even becoming excessively outraged at their request.


In a statement through his attorney, Reinhold said, “I have to say that the past 48 hours have been the most unusual, hair-raising and regrettable two days in my life. At best, it’s a cautionary tale.” Reinhold is known for his roles in The Santa Clause trilogy, Beverly Hills Cop, and Fast Time at Ridgemont High.

His bag had been flagged causing the need for a pat-down. “Two Dallas police officers came over and gave me every opportunity to keep my mouth shut. I didn’t comply with the pat down or their suggestions. This led to my arrest. I knew better. I just didn’t do the right thing.”

He added, “I want to apologize to the Dallas Police for wasting their time today. I want to acknowledge TSA’s experienced agents as well as the recent influx of trainees that seem unprepared to detain people.”

Reinhold was taken to the Dallas County jail for a Class C misdemeanor. He was released the next morning. As he noted this time he “successfully walked through the TSA scanner only to be told by a trainee that it looked like I had a mysterious shape in my backpack. This turned out to be a dense stack of DVD and CDs I ALWAYS carry without incident.”

Do you think TSA should only require pat-downs after they have checked the flagged bag where they find suspicious items? Tell us your experience with airport security in the comments below.
