Shaun White's Drunken Hotel Rampage Charges Dismissed
After appearing in court on Wednesday on charges of public intoxication and misdemeanor vandalism, Shaun White had both charges dismissed.
In exchange, the gold-medalist snowboarder will complete alcohol treatment, 24 hours of community service, and pay restitution to the hotel he allegedly damaged.
According to reports, on September 16th, the 26-year-old athlete was arrested at a Nashville hotel after pulling a fire alarm, destroying a hotel phone, and fleeing the scene.
After the incident, Shaun apologized, posting on his Facebook page, "I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests. I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I'm truly sorry for my poor behavior."
