Shaun White’s recent intoxicated escapades has led to White publicly apologizing and promising never to pull a hotel fire alarm again unless there’s an actual fire.
On Tuesday, the snowboarding/skateboarding/X-Games legend apologized for “unwise choices,” saying he got “carried away” after police accused him of pulling a fire alarm that forced unhappy guests to endure and early morning evacuation of a Nashville hotel.
White was formally charged with public intoxication as well as vandalism (both misdemeanors) and is due in court Oct. 10.
White stated, “I’m sorry for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests. 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.”
In the early morning hours on Sunday, police responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel where they allegedly found a drunken White, who witnesses claim pulled the hotel fire alarm. An employee also reported seeing White destroy a hotel phone in an apparent fit of rage.
According to police, White was given the opportunity to sign misdemeanor citations and refused, resulting in his being charged. Baptist Hospital later said that White was treated there and released Monday before he was arrested and booked by police.
