Jack Scalia, the actor who portrayed Nicholas Pearce on the original Dallas, was arrested at LAX yesterday for trying to bring a gun onto an airplane.

TMZ is reporting that Scalia was stopped at the security checkpoint at one of the Terminals. TSA agents discovered the 9mm Glock in Scalia’s carry-on.

The gun was not loaded.

After a search of the 61-year-old actor, a novelty police badge was discovered in his pocket.

Scalia’s Dallas character Nicholas Pearce plunged to his death from a balcony following a fight with J.R. Ewing. Scalia has also appeared in All My Children, Red Eye, and most recently Jersey Shore Shark Attack.
