Actor Judge Reinhold has been arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after a confrontation with security agents at Dallas Love Field airport.

A Dallas Police Department statement says the 59-year-old actor was arrested on Thursday afternoon after Transportation Security Administration employees reported that he refused to submit to a screening at a checkpoint.

Reinhold's attorney, Steve Stodghill, told The Dallas Morning News that Reinhold cleared security but his bag raised an alarm.

Reinhold is remembered mainly for roles in such 1980s movies as Beverly Hills Cop and Fast Times At Ridgemont High.
