"Sandlot" actor charged with assault to public servant
BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Actor Thomas Guiry, better known as “Smalls” from the classic movie “The Sandlot,” was arrested in
Houston last weekend for headbutting a police officer.
The incident happened at the Houston airport.
According to police, united airlines employees reported an unruly passenger whom they said was too drunk to board the plane.
Police confronted the actor and said he could avoid going to jail if he agreed to go to a sobering center. But, he allegedly refused and resisted arrest.
While being restrained, police say Guiry headbutted the officer in the face.
The 32 year old actor now faces a felony charge for assaulting a public servant.
