For most of us who grew up in the 90’s, the movie “The Mighty Ducks’ was huge part of our childhood. Unfortunately, for one of the cast members it has been a very rough ride following the success of the classic movie. Shaun Weiss, the actor who once played Goldberg the goalie, has run into problems with the law, as he was released from jail after serving 12 days in the slammer for petty theft. Now the child star actor is back behind bars after getting arrested for possession of meth.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops in Burbank got a 911 call last Wednesday for a suspicious person stumbling around yards in a neighborhood near the Warner Bros. studio lot.
Cops responded and arrested Weiss around 2:30 PM, booking him for possession of a controlled substance. We’re told he had meth on him … unclear exactly how much, though. He’s being held on a $20,000 bond.
We broke the story … Weiss was sentenced to 150 days in jail for petty theft just last month, but only served 12 days due to overcrowding. His manager told us at the time Weiss was hoping jail could help him, and that he’d be trying to write a script or jokes while behind bars.
This isn’t the first run-in with the law for Weiss, as the former Mighty Ducks star has had several run-ins with police over the years including a bizarre domestic violence incident in 2013 in which he allegedly attempted to pee on his ex-girlfriend after threatening kill her with a machete.
Hopefully Weiss sobers up and gets the help he needs.
