Marysville, CA – Shaun Weiss, who rose to fame as a child star in The Mighty Ducks movie franchise, appeared disheveled and under the influence in a picture taken when he was arrested for burglary on Sunday.
Weiss, now 40, played the hockey team’s goalie, Greg Goldberg, in The Mighty Ducks gangbusters released in 1992, 1994, and 1996.
At about 6:59 a.m. on Jan. 26, Marysville police officers responded to a call for a burglary in progress in the 600-block of 11th Street, according to a press release posted on the official Facebook page of the Marysville Police Department.
When officers arrived on the scene, the homeowner told them an unknown man was in his garage.
Police found Weiss sitting in the man’s car inside the garage, according to the press release.
It appeared Weiss had broken out the passenger window of the vehicle to gain access.
Officers ordered Weiss to get out of the vehicle and ultimately identified him using his California driver’s license, the police department said.
He told officers that he didn’t live at the residence and that the car he had been sitting in wasn’t his.
The press release said Weiss appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine when he was arrested.
He was booked into the Yuba County Jail on charges of residential burglary and being under the influence of a controlled substance.
His mugshot, which showed the former child star in a seriously disheveled state, quickly went viral on social media.
Weiss was initially held on $52,500 bail, but that amount was later reduced to $25,000, according to CNN.
The beleaguered actor’s last role in a mainstream production was as the bus driver in the 2008 Owen Wilson movie “Drillbit Taylor.”
This is not Weiss’ first encounter with law enforcement, CNN reported.
He was arrested by the Oroville Public Safety Department in August of 2018 for public intoxication but was released without charges on that occasion.
Afterwards, Weiss posted on Facebook that he had hit rock bottom and was checking himself into a long-term rehabilitation center.
