Mighty Ducks star Shaun Weiss was arrested early Saturday in Northern California after police found him allegedly high on drugs and acting bizarrely with a flashlight.
Weiss, 38 years old, was booked about 12:47 a.m. after patrolling officers found him outside a closed business complex along the main boulevard in Oroville with approximately three other individuals, according to police Lt. Chris Nicodemus.
The group was “behaving erratically with flashlights” — such as Weiss shining a light in his own face, and the officers suspected they might be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, Nicodemus says.
The actor was held behind bars for a few hours until he sobered up and then was released without charges, Nicodemus says, which is a “routine” occurrence in public intoxication arrests in California.
He cites a state law permitting just such a release, without charges, in cases of people who are intoxicated and where “no further proceedings are desirable.”
Weiss is perhaps best known for his role as a child actor playing goalie Greg Goldberg in the Mighty Ducks films in the early ’90s. WTF happened to this kid.
