Shaun Weiss, Ex-Mighty Ducks Star, Arrested for Bizarre Behavior
How the Mighty have fallen.
Literally and depressingly so.
Shaun Weiss, the child actor who portrayed goalie Greg Goldberg in The Mighty Duck film franchise, was arrested over the weekend for public intoxication.
According to TMZ, People Magazine and other outlets, Weiss was allegedly high on drugs and acting very strangely with a flashlight at the time he was taken into custody.
He was picked up by police officers who discovered Weiss and a trio of othermen outside of a closed business complex in Oroville, California.
After speaking with the others in his contigent, authorities determined that Weiss had to have been on some kind of controlled substance.
The ex-actor was held behind bars for a few hours until he sobered up and was then released without charges.
Reports indicate that Weiss was “witty” while in custody and no blood sample has been ordered.
It sounds like Weiss caught a break and will not face any legal repercussion for his bizarre and possibly dangerous actions.
The star was also arrested last year possession of meth.
That incident came just five days after he had been sentenced to 150 days in jail for stealing $ 151 worth of stuff from an electronics store.
He spent just 12 days at the time behind bars due to overcrowding, with his manager saying the stint would serve as a wake-up call for the actor.
Sadly, though, this appears to not have been the case.
In a Facebook post, the Oroville Police Department said Weiss was arrested on suspicion of “intoxication only” and “no further criminal proceedings are desired at this time.”
Still, it’s his depressed and disheveled mug shot that has fans concerned.
“Of all the depressing mugshots in all the world, this one hit me the hardest,” one social media user wrote in response to the photo above.
“Seeing pictures of Shaun Weiss are really sad. I grew up loving The Mighty Ducks and even to this day my friends and I make Goldberg references. I hope he gets the support and help he needs.”
“Damn, this is really sad. #ShaunWeiss was such a talented actor in his day. I knew of Weiss from his hilarious role in Heavyweights before I saw him in Mighty Ducks and Freaks and Geeks. I hope he finds #recovery soon.”
We strongly agree.
In addition to the Mighty Ducks franchise, which featured three popular installments, Weiss also has had roles in Heavyweights, Freaks and Geeks, The King of Queens and The Tony Danza Show.
