And there’s the mug shot! Pro snowboarder and two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was arrested yesterday after he supposedly got super drunk at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville. TMZ reports that he not only trashed his room because he got so wasted, but he also started pulling fire alarms when hotel staff tried to get him to behave himself. It’s being said that White also ended up injuring himself pretty badly because he tried to run away from them, and when someone tried to stop him, he kicked the person and tried to get away. Not a good idea when you’re that uncoordinated. The unidentified male he kicked chased after him but ended up running right into White who then fell and hit his head on a fence, apparently. You can see the shiner in his mug shot! He has been booked for public intoxication and vandalism but luckily, not for assault as the person he attacked is not pressing charges. All of this went down around 2 AM and he was only taken to jail after he was treated for his injury. Police say he was pretty out of it when they found him and was smelling of booze. And he’s probably still hungover. We’re not certain if he’s still cooling his heel in jail, though as more news is still emerging.
