Shaun Weiss, the “Mighty Ducks” star actor, was arrested over the weekend for public intoxication, Fox News has confirmed.
Part of the statement released by Oroville Public Safety Department said Weiss, 39, “was arrested for being under the influence of drugs” at about 12:47 a.m. on Saturday, August 4 in Oroville, Calif. He was allegedly high on drugs and acting bizarrely with a flashlight
Officers on patrol picked Weiss when they found him and three others outside a closed business complex in Oroville, Calif. After talking with the others in his group, authorities determined that Weiss was high on drugs. The Heavy Weights star was held behind bars for a few hours until he sobered up and was released without charges. It’s unclear what he was supposedly on and no blood sample was ordered. Amused officers said Weiss was “witty” while in custody.
However, Weiss’s mug shot does not look pretty. The actor appears disheveled and thin, looking much older than 38. His condition has concerned fans on social media.
This is not the first time Weiss is falling foul of the law. In July 2017, the actor was arrested for stealing $151 in merchandise from Fry’s Electronics. He pled no contest to petty theft and was sentenced to serve 150 days in a Los Angeles County jail. He ended up serving 12 days due to overcrowding. Previously, the actor had been arrested on drug-related charges including meth possession.
Apart from featuring in “Mighty Ducks” franchise, which lasted three movies, Weiss previously was featured in “Heavyweights,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “The King of Queens” and “The Tony Danza Show.”
