Remember Smalls from “Sandlot?” “You’re killing us Smalls!” The kid who played the kid who had to steal his stepfather’s signed Babe Ruth baseball to impress his friends only to hit a home run over a fence and lose it to have to have an adventure to get it back is in trouble with the law. Tom Guiry was arrested for headbutting a cop and allegedly trying to kick him in the face.
The story goes something like this. Guiry was at an airport in Houston and an employee from United Airlines deemed him too drunk to fly. Said employee then contact a police officer in the airport who approached Guiry and gave him a couple of options. The first was a public intoxication arrest. The other was a drunk tank.
It was at that point Guiry became not so “Smallsy.” He was verbally abusive, threatening, and then tried to kick the cop in the face. Guiry was then taken down to the ground and handcuffed. He was booked on a felony assault on a police officer. The injuries to the cop were minor. Guiry is out on bail.
Yet another child actor in trouble with the law. I personally thought after seeing him in “Mystic River” that he’d have a shot as an actor. Unfortunately that movie was a decade ago.
