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.

Good luck to him, and it's -sadly- nice to see a celebrity actually just handle it.

What an unfortunate looking face. I'd have to be drunk to look at it for prolonged periods, so I imagine it is worse for him to have to look at it all the time. No wonder he drinks.

He is a snowboarder for heaven’s sake. Why would anyone be surprised? Have you meet snowboarders? Some are bit fringy to say the least, and Shaun is their chief. I ski, and the boarders seem to just lay on the runs talking about Fritos :)
