This is just a hunch, but Tom Guiry would probably prefer if you didn't ask "where are they now?" when it comes to "The Sandlot."

That's because the answer for Guiry right now would be "in a whole lot of trouble."

As reported by TMZ earlier on Wednesday morning, the actor who famously played Scotty Smalls in the 1993 classic was arrested after allegedly headbutting a police officer while trying to board a flight in Texas. He was arrested and charged with felony assault on a police officer, who suffered minor injuries, according to the website.

Altogether now, and for good measure: You're killing me, Smalls!

From TMZ:

We're told Guiry was at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston over the weekend when a United Airlines employee concluded he was too drunk to fly.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the employee contacted an airport cop, who approached Guiry and gave him two options: a public intoxication arrest, or the drunk tank.

Guiry then made a terrible mistake -- allegedly becoming belligerent and verbally abusive ... and even threatening the officer. Guiry then allegedly tried kicking the cop in the face and then scored a headbutt.

TMZ reports that Guiry posted a $5,000 bail and was released. His representation offered a "no comment" when reached by the website.

This has been a big year for "The Sandlot" as it celebrated its 20th anniversary with a well-trafficked Big League Stew post featuring stories about the movie's filming and then a reunion at the actual sandlot where the movie was filmed in Utah.

This, however, is the wrong way to keep occupying those headlines, Smalls.

Baseball season's in full swing. Don't miss a thing.
