Olympic snowboarder Shaun White is now in legal trouble.

He was arrested over the weekend in Nashville, Tenn., for vandalism and public intoxication. He was allegedly drunk, pulled the fire alarm and destroyed a hotel phone Sunday morning. Police say he then attacked a witness who tried to stop him from getting into a cab.

A mug shot of White shows a large bruise under his left eye.

The two-time gold medalist is due in court next month.
