Shaun White arrested for causing stir at hotel, has black eye in mug shot (Picture)

Shaun White was arrested after allegedly causing a stir at a hotel in Nashville, Tenn., on Sunday morning, and then trying to leave the scene.

White is alleged to have pulled a fire alarm causing all the hotel guests to evacuate, and according to WKRN-TV in Nashville, a hotel employee saw him destroy a hotel phone.

White apparently tried grabbing a cab to leave the scene outside the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, but another person was able to stop him from fleeing. Only one problem — White is said to have kicked the person. The person tried chasing White, who eventually crashed into a fence. That could be how he got the black eye.

He was charged with public intoxication and vandalism.

Just another typical night out on the town for the snowboarder/skateboarder extraordinaire! Maybe he just needs the calming influence of his model girlfriend around in order to set him straight.

UPDATE: White apologized for his behavior on Tuesday.

“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 wrote 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.”
