While most of us equate Nashville with Justin Timberlake (what, you donít?) and a ridiculous rib scene, after today, itís now going to be associated as the city where Olympic gold medalist (and hey, budding actor!) Shaun White showed his behind.

According to a TMZ report, the athlete got drunk Sunday in a hotel, which has now been identified in the Tennessean as the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel and "trashed" it. However, reports are conflicting. The newspaper only says White broke a phone. Nonetheless, upon hearing the ruckus the ginger-haired snowboarder was causing, hotel staff confronted him. He then allegedly pulled fire alarms,tried to kick someone, and then split his head on a fence while trying to run away from the scene. Soooo, no one can confuse him with Usain Bolt, that's for sure.

White has been arrested for public intoxication and vandalism of $500 or less. He has received treatment in a Nashville hospital where he was just released. He's reportedly refused to sign a misdemeanor citation.

Of course, we'll be following this news, if only to find out the well-being of one fine hotel!
