He claimed he didn’t understand why he had to be searched after going through a scanner, according to the Dallas Morning News, which reported:

Dallas attorney Steve Stodghill, who’s representing the actor, said Reinhold successfully passed through the TSA scanner and was stopped only after his bag set off an alarm. Stodghill said that’s when TSA agents asked to pat down Reinhold, who didn’t understand why he needed to be searched after he’d gone through the scanner without incident.


“Thanks for the exposure guys” the film actor said as he was being led off by Dallas police. “I really appreciate it.”

Fox 4 reported:

The Dallas police indicated in a brief statement that officers covering the airport were “alerted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regarding an individual causing a disturbance by refusing to submit to a screening at the appropriate checkpoint area. The officers responded and subsequently took the individual into custody after he refused to comply.”
