David Henrie Apologizes After Being Arrested for Carrying Gun Through LAX

The 29-year-old actor released a statement a few hours after he was arrested at LAX.
“I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today. I unintentionally brought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport. 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. More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened. But I am thankful to the TSA, LAPD and all involved today for their kindness and their professionalism during this process.”
The Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association responded to David’s apology on Twitter and acknowledged his professionalism throughout the situation.
“It’s unfortunate you had to meet our officers under these circumstances but we appreciate your professionalism and thanking the police officers for doing their jobs not something we hear a lot of lately,” they tweeted. “Safe travels & God Bless.”
