Shaun White’s mug shot seems to confirm what sources have told TMZ — that the Olympic gold medalist allegedly attacked someone who tried to stop him from fleeing the Nashville hotel where he allegedly raised hell.
The Nashville Metro Police Dept. tells TMZ … cops responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel around 2 AM on Sunday after getting a tip that an allegedly intoxicated White pulled a hotel fire alarm, causing an evacuation of the entire hotel. A hotel employee also told police White smashed a hotel phone.
Cops say … a concerned citizen tried to stop the 26-year-old from leaving the scene in a taxi … but White allegedly kicked the person and proceeded to flee on foot.
According to police, the alleged victim says he chased after White … and collided with the snowboarder …. causing White to fall backwards and slam his head against a fence.
Cops say White appeared to be extremely intoxicated and reeked of alcohol at the time of the altercation.
White was transported to a nearby hospital where he was booked for vandalism and public intoxication. The citizen declined to pursue assault charges.
