'Mighty Ducks' actor arrested for public intoxication

'Mighty Ducks' actor arrested for public intoxication

In the subsequent mugshot that was released, Weiss appears gaunt and thin with patches of gray in his beard, a far cry from the well-known actor.

Shaun made appearances in the odd episode in a number of shows including Charles in Charge, Webster, Empty Nest, The Cosby Show and Here and Now before The Mighty Ducks, D2: The Mighty Ducks and D3: The Mighty Ducks. Weiss was arrested for being under the influence of drugs. After pleading no contest, he was sentenced to 150 days in the Los Angeles County Jail.

According to People Magazine, Weiss was with a group of people "behaving erratically with flashlights" near a closed business complex in Oroville and arrested on suspicion of being under the influence. Authorities determined that Weiss was high on drugs, according to Nicodemus, though he did not know which specific substance it was.

The 38-year-old actor was arrested at around 1am before reportedly spending a few hours in a local jail cell to sober up, but eventually was not formally charged.

TMZ reported that Shaun was arrested in Oroville, CA for public intoxication in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Weiss is only facing intoxication charges at this time, officials noted. Disturbingly, this arrest came just five days after he completed a 12-day prison stint for petty theft.

Shaun's career was dotted with notable roles as a child, including the aforementioned Mighty Ducks films, as well as Heavyweights, and Freaks & Geeks. He was eager to get back to doing comedy shows.
