Olympian Shaun White Charged With Vandalismby Pearls Hilton 1 year ago
With all the frenzy of the summer Olympics winding down, it’s easy to forget that another type of Olympic competition exists – the winter Olympics, starring Shaun White. The ginger snowboard phenom has been able to add two Olympic golds to his accolades…and apparently he likes to rage off the half pipe.
Around 2:00 AM Sunday night, cops responded to a noise complaint the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. Apparently, White got black out drunk, pulled a fire alarm, and caused all hotel guests to evacuate. He also smashed a hotel phone in a fit of rage. White tried to get the hell out of dodge in a taxi, but some buzzkill…I mean hotel guest chased after him and tried to stop him. White kicked the hotel guest and then proceeded to play a drunken game of “Catch me if You Can” with the guest trying to pursue a citizen’s arrest. White fell into a fence and got a black eye.
After his fall, cops brought White to a local hospital where he was treated for his facial injury. He was then charged with vandalism and public intoxication.
I think this is awesome. Who hasn’t raged and damaged property at one point or another? Besides, Shaun White has to be a badass snowboarder…look at his hair.
