Snowboard and skateboard champion Shaun White was arrested earlier this week during a Black Keys wedding celebration, and now TMZ has learned that White was carrying around his very own handle of vodka throughout the ceremony.
White was arrested during the early morning hours Monday morning in Nashville, Tennessee. The arrest came after White allegedly destroyed his hotel room and then pulled a fire alarm and ran away from hotel staff members after they tried to confront him about his antics.
It should be noted that Shaun White wasn’t exactly hogging the bottle as he invited anyone willing to do shots to join him.
At least one guest claims to have watched Shaun White do at least 12 to 15 shots.
Following the incredibly embarrassing night, White released the following apology statement:
“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.”
Shaun White was arrested and booked on charges of vandalism and public intoxication.
At least he didn’t attempt to go skateboarding or snowboarding after drinking a handle of vodka. Who am I kidding? He could probably snowboard better drunk than most of us can walk down the street completely sober.
Are you surprised by Shaun White’s actions, or is this the exact type of behavior we have come to expect from extreme sports athletes outside of competition?
