Police Inspector Jimmy Cacchione said it was the personal initiative of one officer and not something the department supported.

Quebec journalist Marieve Paradis said on her blog Friday, she spotted Berry, her partner, Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, and their child, being led to the front of the security line at a Montreal airport Monday, while other passengers waited more than an hour.

The officer will not be reprimanded and the police airport unit will institute stricter rules for the future, Cacchione added.

Berry's agent Toni Howard was not immediately available for comment.
