Breaking News 0917_shaun_white_mug_shot_article_tmz
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.
