The former "Dallas" star was taken into custody after an unloaded Glock was found in his luggage as he attempted to pass through security. Scalia said the firearm had been a gift from a friend, although he had not realized that it was in his bag, and was subsequently released on $10,000 bail.

The actor is now facing two misdemeanor counts for carrying a concealed firearm and taking a prohibited weapon through the sterile area at the airport.
Scalia's representative Steve Jaffe tells TMZ.com, "Everyone knows Jack's a very bright guy and would never intentionally do such a thing. It was clearly a mistake and it's filed as a misdemeanor. I'm sure it will get worked out."
If convicted, the 62-year-old could face up to 18 months behind bars and $2,000 in fines.
