‘Sandlot’ star Tom Guiry is all grown up and now he’s got more problems than losing his stepdad’s baseball. Check out the 5 Fast Facts on why our beloved ‘Smalls’ is in some big trouble.
1. Tom Guiry Was Drunk at the Airport
Apparently, Guiry was a belligerent mess over the weekend while at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. According to TMZ, a United Airlines worker decided that Guiry was too drunk to fly, so they contacted an airport police officer. When the cop approached Guiry, the ‘Sandlot’ star was presented with two choice. He could either be placed under arrest for public intoxication or head to the drunk tank. As you can guess, Guiry did not like either of these options.
2. A Headbutt Will Land You in Jail
Just ask Tom Guiry what headbutting an officer will get you. After becoming verbally abusive, Guiry threatened the officer questioning him. Guiry then attempted to kick the cop in the face, which was unsuccessful. However, he did manage to headbutt the officer. Bad move, Smalls.
3. Guiry Has Been Booked for a Felony
Tackled and handcuffed, Guiry was booked for felony assault of a police officer. Fortunately, the officer was barely hurt. Nonetheless, a bail of $5,000 was posted and Guiry was released.
4. Thomas Guiry Had a Kid at Age 18
That’s right. Our little “Smalls” had a child when he was still a child himself. This couldn’t have helped his transition from child star to adult actor. In fact, Guiry once said:
If you don’t get famous when you’re a kid, it makes the transition to adult actor easier.
On the bright side, Guiry said that having his son gave him a reality check.
Having my son made me grow up. I’m keeping my dangers in the movies.
Well, it doesn’t look like he kept his “dangers” in the movies this time. We hope he can put this incident behind him soon. No matter what the outcome, it’s hard to believe that “Smalls” has a 15-year-old son! Man does time fly!
5. His Work Didn’t Stop With Sandlot

Sandlot wasn’t the only big role for Guiry. Black Hawk Down and Lassie were just a couple of the other big ones. In more recent years, he’s been seen on the ‘small’ screen a lot. Achem. Shows including Elementary, Culling Hens, Kings, CSI:Miami, and Law & Order are just a few of the projects he’s been involved with.
