Sandlot actor Tom Guiry, who played Scotty Smalls in the 1993 classic, is making headlines this week -- and not because of the movie's recent 20th anniversary reunion. Guiry, 31, was arrested at an airport in Houston, Tex., over the weekend after he allegedly head-butted a police officer, TMZ reports.

Law-enforcement sources told the site that Guiry was at Bush Intercontinental Airport when a United Airlines employee deemed him too drunk to board his plane. A cop was called to the scene to help deal with the former child star, who reportedly became belligerent.

TMZ says the officer offered Guiry two options: arrest for public intoxication, or a trip to Houston's "sobering center." The actor then allegedly threatened the officer before attempting to kick him in the face and head-butting him.

The cop in question suffered minor injuries, and Guiry was taken into custody and booked for felony assault. He was released later on $5,000 bail.
