'Dallas' Star Jack Scalia

SHOCKED at Gun

In His LAX Carry-On

10/27/2012 5:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1027-jack-scalia-gettyJack Scalia was blown away when cops found a gun in his bag at LAX this week ... telling TMZ the whole thing was just one big, innocent mistake.

As TMZ first reported, the "Dallas" star was busted Thursday after TSA agents found an unloaded 9mm Glock and a novelty police badge in his carry-on bag.

Scalia's rep, Steve Jaffe, tells TMZ the gun was a gift from a friend and the badge was a courtesy shield that was presented to him by former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani. He doesn't know how either ended up in the bag.

Scalia, who is represented by attorney Gary Jay Kaufman, was released after posting a $10,000 bond.  So far, no charges have been filed.

If he''s carrying around a gun and doesn't know it, then he is one dumb ass.

Maybe he is the one person who ever answered "Yes" to the question we all have been asked at an airport; "Did anyone you don't know pack your bag for you?"

He's carrying a gun (unloaded or not) and NO charges are filed, but the woman that had a manicure set in her carry on a few weeks ago at an airport here in NY gets arrested and held in jail for having "weapons" at an airport. She's been in jail for three weeks now waiting on a trail. Her weapons include a nail file and fingernail clippers.

That's exactly like every episode of Cops. Weapons, drugs, and other contraband seem to mysteriously appear in peoples belongings all the time without their knowledge. Must be fairies.

Jack used to be pretty hot. Is he straight or gay? Getting rather hard to tell these days.

Is it common to give guns as gifts? Is it common to forget you are carrying a gun?
