The former child actor, who played Smalls in the movie 'Sandlot,' was arrested in Houston over the weekend after a violent encounter with cops
Tom Guiry, the former child star who gained fame for his role as Smalls in the film Sandlot, was taken into police custody this weekend following a violent run-in with cops at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.
