A former national guardsman received a warm homecoming in Reno, Nev., after being jailed for about two months in the United Arab Emirates.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that dozens of family and friends greeted 23-year-old Nick Moody of Susanville, Calif., at Reno-Tahoe International Airport on Thursday night.

Moody thanked the supporters and says he's glad to be home.

Moody served with the Nevada Army National Guard in Iraq and Afghanistan before taking a job with a private security firm in Iraq.

He was returning from Iraq to the U.S. on Sept. 29 when he was arrested at the Abu Dhabi airport on charges of possession of "accessories related to firearms."

Moody's mother, Lorina Moody of Susanville, says her son spent the next two months in a United Arab Emirates prison after becoming ensnared in bureaucratic red tape.
