ADAM Sandler's father-in-law, Joseph Titone, was arrested with a loaded gun at the Broward County courthouse.
Joseph's daughter, Jackie, is married to the famous comedian, and they share two daughters.
According to Sun Sentinel, Joseph was "stopped as he went through the security checkpoint" at the courthouse.
He would later admit to having a loaded gun in his bag.
According to a police report, the arrest was on a charge of the unlicensed carrying of a concealed firearm, which is a third-degree felony.
The 75-year-old would be released shortly after.
Joseph, a former member of the Florida House of Representatives, explained himself in a recent interview with the outlet.
He claimed: "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.”
"I forgot he was there," Joseph continued, claiming he has not been officially charged.
He added: “I’ll probably have to go to court to explain it, and I will. This was an honest mistake.”
ONE HAPPY FAMILY
Joseph's daughter Jackie married the Happy Gilmore actor in 2003, soon welcoming daughters Sadie, 14, and Sunny, 12.
The Hollywood star once told Huffington Post of his children: "My kids give me the most joy, but there are life adjustments. I don’t go out to meet anyone after 9:30 at night. I eat dinner at six or seven.
"If someone makes me stay out until 10:30 at night, I’m angry the entire next day because I’m exhausted.”
IN HIS CORNER
Adam also once made it clear Jackie supports him when he needs to film a love scene, as he told W magazine: "My wife is always saying, 'Just get in there. Do a good job. Be nice.'
"My wife loves the women I work with, so she's very like, 'Come on! Make sure you [do] the best you can. Give it up. It looks crazy when you don't kiss good enough.'"
He added: "I'm very relieved when we do a movie and at the end of the script I go, 'I don't have to kiss anyone!' Anyway, that's fantastic. But when I do, I get it done. I get it done."
