Cameron Reagan, son of conservative radio host Michael Reagan and grandson of former president Ronald Reagan, was arrested Thursday at his home in Southern California and charged with resisting arrest.

The family said Reagan, 31, inadvertently tripped a security alarm upon returning home early in the morning. When police responded, Reagan was "very uncooperative," Los Angeles Police Officer Bruce Borihanh told the Los Angeles Times.

Reagan was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and was held in lieu of $10,000 bail at Van Nuys Jail, police said.

A spokeswoman for Michael Reagan said when Cameron identified himself and reached for his wallet, officers "thought he was going for a gun."

"They tackled and arrested him," Kirsten Fedewa told CNN.

In 2001, Reagan was ordered by a judge to attend drug rehab and anger management after he was found with marijuana, the Times reported. Earlier, he was convicted of receiving stolen property and vandalism.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
