The Sandlot’s “Scotty Smalls,” also known as actor Tom Guiry, has been arrested for an alleged drunken airport incident in which police say he headbutted a cop.
According to the site, the Sandlot actor was reportedly told he was too intoxicated to fly… and got a bit mouthy.
Guiry is said to have been angered by the suggestion, and allegedly did not take kindly to being asked to sleep it off:
“The story is crazy. We’re told Guiry was at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston over the weekend when a United Airlines employee concluded he was too drunk to fly… Law enforcement sources tell us, the employee contacted an airport cop, who approached Guiry and gave him two options: a public intoxication arrest, or the drunk tank.”
It was then, TMZ claims, Guiry scuffled with the cop and headbutted an officer before he was arrested.
The Sandlot’s Smalls was then reportedly booked and charged with felony assault on a cop, and posted $5,000 bail.
Earlier this year, the actor gave an interview to HuffPo, in which he says he gets recognized as “Smalls” a few times a day at work.
“I work in a hospital as a patient transporter to make ends meet for my three kids. I think about four or five times a day, I have someone say that to me. Where I work is the town I grew up in, I’m more recognized here than in other places. But, a lot of my friends call me Smalls, I go by it. I’ve come to kind of embrace it. If you can’t beat ’em, just join ’em, you know?”
Following the arrest, Guiry did not comment on the incident.
