Judge Reinhold, a man who has played both a pretend judge and a cartoon judge on television because his name is “Judge“, will soon face a real judge. The “Who’s on first?“-style jokes practically write themselves.
TMZ says that Judge Reinhold was arrested yesterday at Dallas Love Field airport after allegedly getting cranky during a TSA pat down. Police say Judge Reinhold gave TSA agents a hard time during his security pat down, so agents offered to continue in a private room. But Judge basically told them to shove a tiny pack of airplane pretzels up their asses. He really didn’t want the pat down. A source tells WFAA-8 that being chosen for a secondary screening sent Judge into meltdown mode. He allegedly took off his shirt and cussed out the TSA agents.
He kicked up such a stink that police were called and he was arrested for misdemeanor disorderly conduct. I hate to be the one to break the news to Scott Calvin that he’s going to have to put his brother-in-law on the naughty list.
Earlier that day, TMZ says Judge was giving a radio station DJ shit for letting his son watch Fast Times at Ridgemont High. So maybe he was just in a ~mood~. He must have started feeling better during the police cruiser ride to jail. A reporter for WFAA-8 says when Judge arrived, he told the media: “Thanks for the exposure guys, glad you’re here.” WFAA-8 says Judge was friendly and apologetic when he was released from jail at around midnight.
If Judge was in such a good mood during his arrest, why did he give such a serious mugshot? He looks like he just found out you got arrested at an airport and has to pick your ass up from the police station. I feel like that mugshot is going to come alive, shake his head and sigh: “Oh brother, you really screwed the pooch this time, didn’t you.” If Judge Reinhold needs a disapproving face that will make him reexamine his life choices, he just needs to look at his own mugshot.
