Veteran actor Jack Scalia has been slapped with two weapons charges following his arrest at Los Angeles International Airport in October.

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.
