Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was arrested several hours ago after allegedly getting wasted at a hotel and badly injuring himself ...  sources tell TMZ.

Sources tell TMZ ... White was in a Nashville hotel when he allegedly trashed his room in a stupor.  When he was confronted by hotel staff, Shaun allegedly pulled several fire alarms and then ran fast ... so fast he fell and split his head open.

Law enforcement tells us Shaun was arrested for public intoxication and vandalism, but was taken to a hospital for treatment first.  Once he's treated he'll be taken to jail.

Shaun's rep could not be reached for comment.

I'm not sure about public intoxication since he got intoxicated in his hotel room, but I'm down with the vandalism.

This ain't the 1960...'s. Get real!

It seems all "olympians' reach that pinnacle and sink into desperation. Sad to peak by 25 and then it's all down hill..
