David Henrie was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday, September 10, Us Weekly can confirm. The 29-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place alum was taken into police custody after he was found with a weapon while walking through airport security.
“David Henrie was arrested at 9:05 a.m. for possession of a loaded firearm at an airport screening at LAX. He has been booked into the LAPD Pacific Division Jail and will be released on his own recognizance,” LAX’s Airport Police Public Information Officer told Us Weekly in a statement.
The actor later posted a statement on Instagram, writing, “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 news comes just five days after Henrie revealed that he and his wife, Maria Cahill, are expecting their first child in a gender reveal video on Instagram.
“ITS A GIRL ITS A GIRL ITS A GIRL. Im a Poppa!!!!! Im so overwhelmed with joy I had to share this with you guys,” the actor announced on Wednesday, September 5. “I’m already singing ‘I Loved Her First.’ That reminds me. Where’s my shotgun? I don’t have a shotgun. Someone get me a shotgun! I can’t wait to sit her down on a couch and tell her a 9 season story of How I Met Your Mother #baby #itsagirl #shotgun #poppa #dad.”
Henrie starred alongside Selena Gomez on the popular Disney Channel sitcom Wizards of Waverly Place for four seasons from 2007 to 2012. The two have remained close friends and are often spotted enjoying each other’s company.
