The Beverly Hills Cop star was taken into custody following an alleged altercation with customs officials at Dallas Love Field airport, where he refused to submit to a screening during a security check.

He also dismissed an offer for a pat-down in a private room.

He was booked for disorderly conduct and was released from jail early on Friday (09Dec16), when he confessed to local news station WFAA-TV he was "just embarrassed" by the incident.

Reinhold subsequently scrapped plans to attend the Paradise City Comic Con event in Florida this weekend (10-11Dec16), according to TMZ.com.

If convicted of the charge, the 59-year-old faces a fine of up to $500 (£400).
