From Olympic glory to ... getting arrested? Two-time Olympic gold medal-winning snowboarder Shaun White apologized Tuesday after his arrest for public intoxication and vandalism.
"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," he says in a statement posted on his Facebook page. "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."
White, 26, was arrested early Sunday morning in Nashville, where he was attending a wedding, according to People. Police say White, who appeared to be extremely intoxicated, pulled a hotel fire alarm, causing evacuations, then attempted to flee the scene, and wound up hitting his head as officers chased him. Do you forgive White for his "unwise choices"?
