Henrie would release a statement on Twitter stating:
“I take responsibility for the sitaution 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 am thankful to the TSA, LADP and all involved today for their kindness and their professionalism during this process.”

David Henrie is a class act apparently. Not commonly seen among celebrities.

However, a number of people decided to deride the police officers with a number of people using the ACAB acronym which stands for “All Cops Are Bastards.”

The police whining to a Disney channel kid that they don’t get enough thanks is extremely funny
