Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, best known for his close resemblance to comedian Carrot Top, was busted over the weekend. And his arrest was no laughing matter. TMZ is reporting that White was raising hell at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel early Sunday morning in Nashville, Tenn. Among his antics -- trashing a hotel room and pulling not just one but several fire alarms, which led to the hotel being evacuated. How very high school of the renowned 26-year-old Olympian. White apparently had one too many following the wedding of musician Patrick Carney. Instead of sleeping it off, White proceeded to cause total bedlam in the hotel. When a good Sam spotted White trying to leave the hotel, he chased after the inebriated superstar, causing him to fall and whack his face on a nearby fence. But not before White kicked the guy. The by-product of the fracas is written over White's face in his mugshots. The po po who showed up to arrest White described him to be extremely intoxicated and stinking of booze. White was taken to the hospital for medical attention. He was arrested for vandalism and public intoxication. As for the good Sam, he opted not to press assault charges against the Olympic medalist whose behavior was hardly golden. In happier, more law-abiding times, White was most recently in the news for supposedly dating supermodel Bar Refaeli.
