Ex-Disney teen actor arrested over handgun

Former Wizards of Waverly Place actor David Henrie apologises for bringing firearm to LAX.

Only in America do former Disney stars carry handguns…

Former Wizards of Waverly Place actor David Henrie has apologised after being arrested on Monday for bringing a loaded handgun to Los Angeles International Airport.

Henrie, 29, who played Selena Gomez’s brother Justin, was arrested at LAX after officials went through his baggage and found the firearm.

Following the incident, Henrie apologized in a statement on Twitter.

“I am so sorry for any trouble it caused but I am appreciative of TSA’s efforts in implementing the safety laws that are in place to protect our beautiful country,” he wrote. “More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened.”

Henrie has also appeared on House, How I Met Your Mother, and Arrested Development. He is set to direct a movie This Is the Year that he also co-wrote, and filming is expected to begin this week.

A court date is pending.
