US actor Judge Reinhold has been arrested after a confrontation with security officials at Dallas airport, BBC says.


Police say the 59-year-old actor was held on a disorderly conduct charge at Dallas Love Field.


The police said he had refused to go through screening. He then resisted a pat-down by the airport security. But his lawyer questioned the claim.


Reinhold co-starred in such 1980s films as Beverly Hills Cop and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.


If found guilty, he could pay up to a $500 fine.


Reinhold's attorney said the actor had successfully passed the Transportation Security Administration scanner and was stopped only after his bag raised an alarm, the Dallas Morning News reports.

The attorney added that the actor did not understand why he needed to be searched after he had gone through the scanner without incident.
