Sandlot Star 'Scotty Smalls' Arrested For Allegedly Headbutting Police Officer

(CBS) You're killing me, Smalls!

Who could forget the lovable character of Scotty Smalls, played by actor Tom Guiry, in the 1993 cult-classic The Sandlot?

Well, the once affable Guiry was reportedly arrested over the weekend for headbutting a police officer at a Texas airport.

The fracas began after Guiry was told he was too intoxicated to board his flight at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. TMZ cites law enforcement sources who claim Guiry was given two options by the airport police officer before he turned violent: a public intoxication arrest or the drunk tank. The movie star then assaulted the officer.

He was cuffed and booked for felony assault of a police officer.

Guiry, 31, posted $5,000 bail and was later released.
