Snowboarder Shaun White has been arrested on charges of public intoxication and vandalism. Police apprehended the two-time Olympic gold medalist on Sunday after he allegedly destroyed a phone and pulled the fire alarm at a hotel in Nashville, according to CBS and the AP. White’s attempt to flee in a cab was foiled by a concerned bystander, who told the taxi’s driver that he would call the police. The drunken athlete was arrested that night and released late Monday afternoon. He’s scheduled to appear in court Oct. 10.
