Shaun White
says he's real sorry for (allegedly) being a drunken mess Sunday  ... trashing his hotel room in the process and (allegedly) attacking a dude.

The pro-snowboarder took to his Facebook account this AM, saying "I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests."

White was arrested for public intoxication and vandalism. He was hospitalized for injuries he suffered when he fell as he tried to flee.

White says, "I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away."

That happens all the time...to teenagers. As per usual...you're sorry you got caught being stupid.

He is taking responsibility; not blaming others; and is not claiming racism. Stupid stunt but what a refreshing change.

The guy looked like Axl Rose in the mug shots, and he is acting like a 70's rock star! At least he owned it and said he was sorry.

Good that he apologized and seemed to know he did something wrong; I'd wager that most people had a stupid celebratory moment. It's sad that that's impressive though

Shaun, will you be paying for the cost of the room for all the other guests at the hotel. Dude, having to evacuate because you pulled the fire alarm makes for a less then enjoyable stay. You should put your action where your apology is and reimburse those guests you totally screwed.

I dont know what went wrong but he is a good looking young man with a lot of talent, and has by all appearances been a good "citizen thus far. He will make it right and Im sure live a good life. He is far from over because of this. He just needs to hold his heade up high.
