Former child star Shaun Weiss has been arrested for burglary and being under the influence of methamphetamine.
The 41-year-old, who starred in Disney’s The Mighty Ducks and its sequels, was detained by police in Marysville, California, after he was allegedly found in a vehicle he broke into at a residential property.
The Marysville Police Department released a mugshot of the actor alongside a photo taken of him in 2015 and said it “turns out Mr Weiss was a movie star one time”.
The force said Weiss was arrested on Sunday shortly before 7am for “residential burglary and being under the influence of a controlled substance”.
Officers were called following reports that a burglary was “in process” and when they arrived at the scene, the homeowner said he had witnessed a man inside his garage.
After entering the garage, officers found a “male subject inside of the homeowner’s vehicle,” the police department said.
“Weiss forced entry to gain access into the vehicle by shattering a window,” a force statement said.
“Officers noticed shattered glass on the ground and observed that the passenger window to the vehicle was broken.
“Officers ordered the male out of the vehicle and took him into custody.
“The male was identified through his California driver’s licence as Shaun Weiss.”
The Marysville Police Department said Weiss “displayed symptoms of being under the influence of methamphetamine”.
He told officers he did not live at the property and the vehicle was not his, the force added.
Weiss was taken to Yuba county jail and is being held on $52,000 bail.
The actor starred as ice hockey goalie Greg Goldberg in 1992 film The Mighty Ducks before reprising the role in 1994 sequel D2: The Mighty Ducks and 1996’s D3: The Mighty Ducks.
His acting career also included appearances in 2008 film Drillbit Taylor starring Owen Wilson; 2005 comedy Heavyweights opposite Ben Stiller, and roles in TV shows Saved By The Bell: The New Class, Pee Wee’s Playhouse and The Tony Danza show.
