Judge Reinhold Pleads No Contest in TSA Altercation Case

”Fast Times at Ridgemont High“ star’s charge will be dropped if he stays out of trouble for 90 days

Judge Reinhold is off the hook when it comes to a run-in he had with the TSA last month — if he manages to stay out of trouble.

The “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” star has pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from the Dec. 8 incident. In exchange for the plea, the charge will be dropped if the actor keeps his nose clean in Dallas for the next 90 days, the Dallas News reports.

Reinhold had faced a $500 fine in the case.

The actor made headlines in December when he was arrested at Dallas Love Field airport after he allegedly confronted Transportation Security Administration employees.

According to a press release issued by the Dallas Police Department at the time, officers were alerted by the TSA that an individual was “causing a disturbance” and refusing to submit to a screening at a checkpoint area.

“The officers responded and subsequently took the individual into custody after he refused to comply,” police said.

According to the Dallas News, Reinhold became “belligerent” after being selected for a pat-down Thursday afternoon.

Police were then called to the scene and attempted to calm the actor, but according to authorities Reinhold was “antagonistic” toward the officers.

Reinhold’s attorney in the matter, Steve Stodghill, told the Dallas News that Reinhold successfully passed through the TSA scanner, but was stopped when his luggage set off an alarm. The actor didn’t understand why he should be searched after the successful scan, the attorney said.

The actor issued an apology following his arrest, saying he was medicated during the incident.
