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 just hope he didn't piss his pants like Belgian cyclist Gijs Van Hoecke, I'd like to think American athletes are better than that.

I don't understand the "trashing" thing with these people. I haven't done so a whole lot but I've been pretty wasted a few times in my life and I didn't trash the place where I was. Who the fvck do these people think they are?

@LaffinBear: At-first, your fixation bothered me. Now, you simply bore me.

@Paul2281: Indeed, we ALL must face the consequences of our choices - good or bad.
Hopefully, if you EVER make a bad choice, SOMEBODY will be pulling for YOU.
By the way, how many Gold Medals have you won for the U.S.A.?
