“Fast Times at Ridgemont High” actor Judge Reinhold was arrested at Dallas Love Field airport Thursday after an incident involving TSA workers.

Fox 4 News reported that Reinhold, 59, became uncooperative when TSA agents attempted to give him a random pat-down. The agents offered to search him in a private room, but Reinhold still refused to cooperate.

Dallas police said that the agents reported Reinhold to officers, who arrested the actor for disorderly conduct.

Reinhold’s attorney, Steve Stodghill, told The Dallas Morning News that Reinhold himself cleared security, but his bag raised an alarm at the checkpoint. Stodghill told the paper that Reinhold did not understand why he needed to be patted down after he had gone through the scanner without incident.

Reinhold was taken to the Dallas County jail for booking. Disorderly conduct is punishable by a fine of up to $500.

The Morning News reported that Reinhold was traveling through Dallas on his way to New Mexico, where he has a home.
