Olympic snowboarder Shaun White has agreed to seek alcohol treatment after his crazy face-bruising public intoxication arrest in September -- and he could end up beating the rap, altogether.

Shaun struck a deal with prosecutors today -- agreeing to undergo alcohol treatment, perform 24 hours of community service, and pay restitution to the Nashville hotel he allegedly trashed in a drunken stupor.

As we reported, Shaun was arrested following the Nashville wedding for Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney -- where he got sloshed on beaucoup vodka. According to police, Shaun left the wedding and wreaked havoc on the hotel where he was staying ... pulling the fire alarm and breaking a telephone.

If Shaun holds up his end of the deal with prosecutors by January 25th -- they have agreed to dismiss the public intoxication charge against him.

In exchange for Shaun's cooperation, prosecutors have already dropped the vandalism charge.
