David Henrie, who starred with Selena Gomez on “Wizards of Waverly Place,” was arrested yesterday for carrying what was allegedly a loaded 9mm handgun at Los Angeles International Airport. David was reportedly caught during routine TSA screening. After the gun was identified, David was immediately cuffed and brought to a nearby station for questioning.
A TMZ reporter caught David after the incident walking to his car after being released by the police. In the video, he admits that the gun was his and “that it was legal.”
David later posted a statement to his social media saying, in part, that he took “full responsibility for the situation at LAX.” He further explained, “I unintentionally brought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport. I am sorry for the trouble that it caused … But am thankful today to the TSA, LAPD and all involved today for their kindess and their professionalism …”
David then retweeted a response back from the LAXPD’s Union that said, it’s unfortunate you had to meet our officers under these circumstances but we appreciate your professionalism and thanking the police officers …”
We have the full posts by David and the LAXPD’s Union (LAAPOA), as well as TMZ’s video, below.
