Former Child Star Arrested — and His Mugshot Becomes an Internet Hit

Aug 7, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A former child actor was arrested over the weekend, and his mugshot soon began to make the rounds on the Internet after it was released by police in Oroville, Calif.

The mugshot, which you can see below, appears to capture Shaun Weiss at something less than his best, as is often the case with police mugshots.

The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Weiss was arrested early Saturday morning for allegedly being under the influence in public. Weiss, 38, is best known for playing the goalie Goldberg in the “Mighty Ducks” feature films.

The Oroville Public Safety Department said in a statement put out Monday: “Weiss was arrested for being under the influence of drugs. He was transported and booked into the Butte County Jail. He was arrested for intoxication only and no further criminal proceedings are desired at this time.”

The Post report notes that Weiss was arrested on drug charges in 2017, just days after he was released in connection with a separate crime. In the latest incident, Weiss was reportedly released after a few hours.

“The ‘Heavyweights’ actor was sentenced to 90 days in county jail last year for possession of suspected methamphetamine in Burbank, California,” The Post reports. “He was also sentenced to 150 days in jail after he stole $151 worth of merchandise from Fry’s Electronics.”
