Cop-turned-actor Dennis Farina
will not face felony charges for weapons possession following his arrest at Los Angeles International Airport in early May. The Get Shorty
star, 64, was apprehended at L.A.X. Airport on May 11 after a loaded gun was found in his briefcase as he attempted to board a plane.
He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon following the discovery of the .22 caliber, semi-automatic pistol. Authorities later discovered the gun was also unregistered.
But the former Chicago, Illinois police officer has scored a lucky break - a spokesperson at the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office has confirmed his case is now being reviewed as a possible misdemeanor.
Farina can currently be seen in NBC's crime drama, Law & Order
