Two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was charged over the weekend with public intoxication and vandalism. According to TMZ, he trashed a Nashville hotel room, pulled a fire alarm, then ran and fell, splitting his head.
Associated Press obtained the police report from White's arrest and it claimed he broke a phone at the Vanderbilt Hotel. The report says White tried to attack a hotel guest. Police said he was given the chance to sign a misdemeanor citation but refused. White was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
White has gained fame as both a snowboarder and skateboarder. He has two Olympic gold medals in snowboarding and a host of medals from the Winter X Games. His popularity has led to advertising deals with Target, Red Bull, Burton and more.
