Actor Judge Reinhold threw a major fit at Love Field Thursday. Dallas police arrested Reinhold, best known for his parts in Beverly Hills Cop, Fast Times at Ridgemont High and, a little more recently, Arrested Development, Thursday afternoon at Love Field after the actor took issue with being screened by the Transportation Security Administration.

At about 1:15 p.m., the Dallas Police Department says, TSA screeners alerted police officers at the city-owned airport that a man was causing a disturbance by refusing to submit to screening at "the appropriate checkpoint area." Officers came to the check and Reinhold, 59, still refused to go through screening, DPD says, so they arrested the Gremlins star.

Police took Reinhold to Dallas County Jail where he was booked for disorderly conduct, a Class C Misdemeanor. WFAA documented Reinhold's perp-walk at Lew Sterrett.

"Thanks for the exposure guys. I appreciate it. Glad you're here," Reinhold tells the camera man.
