Shaun White Goes on Drunken Rampage

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.
