Henrie, who starred with Selena Gomez on “Wizards of Waverly Place” between 2007 and 2012, was arrested during a TSA screening Monday morning.
Agents found a loaded M&P Shield 9 mm pistol in Henrie’s carry-on bag, TMZ reported.
The 29-year-old actor was detained on suspicion of possessing a loaded firearm and for having a firearm in the screening area of an airport.
Los Angeles Airport Police spokesperson Rob Pedregon told BuzzFeed News the actor does not have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Henrie was booked into the LAPD Pacific Division Jail and later released on his own recognizance, according to People.
He later took responsibility for the arrest in a post on Twitter, writing that he unintentionally brought his gun to the airport. “More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened,” he wrote.
Henrie seems to be a fan of guns.
When Henrie recently announced he is expecting a daughter with wife Maria Cahill, he reportedly wrote on Instagram, “That reminds me. Where’s my shotgun. I don’t have a shotgun. Someone get me a shotgun!” It appears the caption has since been edited.
