Disney star David Henrie, best known for his staring role opposite Selena Gomez on Wizards of Waverly Place, is facing criminal charges for bringing a loaded handgun earlier this month at a Los Angeles airport.

According to Frank Mateljian, a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, Henrie has been charged with three misdemeanor counts: carrying a loaded firearm, carrying a concealed firearm and possessing a weapon in a sterile area of the airport.

Henrie was arrested on Sept. 10, 2018 at about 9 a.m. as he was going through TSA screening at LAX to board a Delta flight in Terminal 3, according to Officer Rob Pedregon, spokesman for the Airport Police.

He was allegedly carrying a Smith & Wesson 9 mm handgun that was loaded, Pedregon said. He was handcuffed and arrested by LAX Police and booked at the LAPD Pacific Division for possession of a loaded firearm and bailed out about three hours later.

Henrie, 29, is out on $10,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials. If convicted of all the charges, Henrie faces a maximum sentence of one year in jail, Mateljian said.

The former child star is scheduled to appear at a Los Angeles Court on Oct. 1 for his arraignment.

The Disney star took to social media shortly after his release from jail and posted a statement concerning his arrest.

"I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today. I unintentionally brought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport. I am so sorry of 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 I am thankful to the TSA, LAPD and all involved today for their kindness and their professionalism during this process."
