Adam Sandler’s father-in-law, Joseph Titone, has been arrested for attempting to bring a gun into a courthouse.
Titone, who is a lawyer, was stopped as he went through the security checkpoint and guards found a gun in his briefcase.
He admitted to the Sun Sentinel that the gun was his: “It was an accident. Evidently I put this gun in my briefcase at one point, intending to take it to the gun range, but that never happened. This was an honest mistake.”
He was arrested on a charge of unlicensed carrying of a concealed firearm, which is a third degree felony.
Titone acknowledged that the matter would likely be taken further: “I’ll probably have to go to court to explain it, and I will. This was an honest mistake.”
His daughter, Jackie, married Sandler in 2003 and they have two children together.
Sandler recently revealed that a plot detail in his upcoming movie, Hustle, was changed because Netflix is unavailable in China.
He told The Dan Patrick Show: “It was written originally that I find a player in China and somehow, Netflix is not in China. So [Netflix] were like, ‘Would you guys please make it so we find somebody in Latin America or Europe?’ So the next thing you know, I’m in Mallorca.”
