'Mighty Ducks' Star Shaun Weiss Arrested for Public Intoxication

Shaun Weiss, the child actor who played goalie Greg Goldberg in The Mighty Duck films, was arrested over the weekend for public intoxication.

Officers in Oroville, CA arrested Weiss on public intoxication charges but cut him a break.

Despite this, his mugshot was still published on the Oroville Police Department's website - in keeping with the fairly standard but still fundamentally odd United States custom - and TMZ subsequently picked up the story. No blood work was done, and police did not confirm what drug Weiss had used.

The company is offering £29,419.64 ($38,116.50) in cash for each share, valuing the entire club at £1.8 billion. The move takes shares away from fans and Arsenal Supporters Trust published a telling statement on the matter.

He was booked into the Butte County Jail.

According to police reports the group were "behaving erratically with flashlights" and the officers quickly suspected they were under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Some reports say he was shining one of the flashlights into his own face. According to TMZ, he was released after a few hours and was not cited. He was then arrested less than a week after his release from jail due to possession of meth.

This was not Weiss' first brush with the law.

Yikes. It is tough to see that when you probably remember Weiss like this.

That arrest occurred just days after he was released from a jail sentence for stealing $151 worth of merchandise from a Fry's electronics store.

Weiss has made multiple TV and movie appearances, including "Freaks and Geeks" and "Boy Meets World", but is best known for his role in "The Mighty Ducks" series. He was eager to get back to doing comedy shows.
