Shaun White arrested after trashing hotel room

shaun-white-arrested-gi.jpgOlympic gold medalist Shaun White was arrested on Monday, Sept. 17 after reportedly getting so drunk he trashed his Nashville hotel room.

According to TMZ, the professional snowboarder allegedly got into an altercation with the hotel's staff after destroying the room. When they confronted him, he pulled several fire alarms and bolted, but fell and cracked his head open during his failed getaway.

Police tell TMZ that White was arrested for public intoxication and vandalism, but was transported to the hospital first to get his injuries taken care of. The 26-year-old will go to jail once he's treated, says the site.

There's no mug shot yet, but stay tuned -- those things always leak. White's reps have not yet commented on the situation.
