Big Black Eye

9/17/2012 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaun White's mug shot ... one big black eye!Shaun White's mug shot seems to confirm what sources have told TMZ -- that the Olympic gold medalist allegedly attacked someone who tried to stop him from fleeing the Nashville hotel where he allegedly raised hell.

The Nashville Metro Police Dept. tells TMZ ... cops responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel around 2 AM on Sunday after getting a tip that an allegedly intoxicated White pulled a hotel fire alarm, causing an evacuation of the entire hotel.  A hotel employee also told police White smashed a hotel phone.

Cops say ... a concerned citizen tried to stop the 26-year-old from leaving the scene in a taxi ... but White allegedly kicked the person and proceeded to flee on foot.

According to police, the alleged victim says he chased after White ... and collided with the snowboarder .... causing White to fall backwards and slam his head against a fence.

Cops say White appeared to be extremely intoxicated and reeked of alcohol at the time of the altercation.

White was transported to a nearby hospital where he was booked for vandalism and public intoxication. The citizen declined to pursue assault charges.

I was JUST in the Target store in NYC and saw the Shaun White collection BEFORE this incident--and thought to myself--this is really a solid action/active sports line aimed at kids,It had to be a lucrative deal for Shaun and his agents as Target Corporation are notoriously picky/anal about their affiliations,licensed products, and 'bullet proof'-ness of their brand association. I suspect the Chief Marketing officer and the CEO are sweating more than SW on a narley half-pipe rright NOW.Mom's are the primary purchaser and this news of a low-brow, bullying incident will be deleterious to White's affiliation on a go-forward basis.Target is NOT Sears who put up with Kardashian Hi-Jinx because they are such a desperate retail channel--but 'TARSHAY' views itself as an aspirational retailer with family-centric values.Shaun just shot himself in the proverbial foot--Mom's won't 'buy in' the forthcoming PR SPIN.White got drunk and ugly and his clothesline became uglier--OVERNIGHT. What a fool and a terrific role model for young kids today....Bye bye TARGET ALLIANCE.

Addiction is no respector of persons...regardless of age, race, creed, social standing, education level, athletic ability, etc. If addiction truly is a 'disease' as many 'professionals' and other sources claim it is, then why isn't more being done in our society to deal with addiction as if it really is a disease? This may have been a rare occurance for Mr. White, but if this event is a result of an addiction, we can only hope he gets the help he needs.

he needs to hang out with Bam they can both trash astro vans, hotel rooms , pull fire alarms to abuse resource that others may need. Then when they end up with a shiner people will be thrilled deep down wishing that someone would have finshed the job and beat both of their a$$es like the pu$$y twirps they really are...
