Olympic gold medal snowboarder arrested
Two-time Olympic snowboarding gold medal winner Shaun White was arrested this weekend for public intoxication and vandalism.
Police were called to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville around 2am on Sunday morning to deal with a very intoxicated Shaun White. The cops offered a misdemeanor citation but White refused.
White drunkenly destroyed a hotel phone and pulled the fire alarm, forcing all the guests outside. Pulling a fire alarm, White? Really? Haven’t heard of that prank since the third grade.
Shaun White tried to make a run for it to a cab but injured himself when a hotel guest attempted to stop him. Shaun White was arrested after getting fixed up at a nearby hospital.
His injury made for an awfully embarrassing but equally awesome mugshot. Shaun White was charged with public intoxication and vandalism. His court date has been set for Oct. 10.
