Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was arrested on Monday for allegedly going on a drunken tear at a hotel in Nashville.

The 26-year-old snowboarder is accused of trashing a hotel room before pulling several hotel fire alarms, causing guest evacuations. He then tried to flee in a taxi. That escape was thwarted by a concerned citizen, who got kicked by White before White took off. The citizen gave chase until White fell, splitting his head open.

White was transported to a hospital and booked for vandalism and public intoxication. Police on the scene say White appeared intoxicated and smelled of alcohol. The citizen did not file assault charges.

Michael Madsen has been busted for DUI, testing at twice the legal limit for alcohol after police pulled him over for driving erratically on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Reports say Madsen’s Pontiac GTO, with a red-flame paint job, was spotted weaving on the highway at about 3 pm. A citizen called the police and Madsen was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

While being booked, Madsen complained of medical problems and was taken to a local hospital, where he spent the night. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Madsen had a blood alcohol level of .21, over than twice the .08 legal limit. His bail is set at $15,000.

This is the second arrest for the troubled actor in six months. Madsen was arrested at his Malibu home in March after police arrived to break up a drunken fight Madsen was having with his teenage son. No charges were filed over a lack of evidence.
