‘Mighty Ducks’ Star Shaun Weiss Arrested For Burglary While Under Influence of Meth
Ex-actor Shaun Weiss was arrested on January 29 in Marysville, California, a small town 40 miles north of Sacramento. Weiss was arrested on a count of residential burglary and being under the influence of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.
At approximately 7 a.m., Marysville Police Officers were requested to the 600 block of 11th Street. The homeowner informed the officers that they live alone, and there was an unknown male sitting in the homeowner’s vehicle. Weiss, whose identity was still unknown to all, forced entry into the vehicle by smashing a window out. Police then detained Weiss and charged him with two crimes.
Weiss’ former status as a child-star was not known to Marysville Police until further internal investigations were held.
In August 2018, he was arrested outside of a commercial strip of road in Oroville, California, on suspicions of being under the influence of drugs.
In July 2017, Weiss was arrested for petty theft. Seventeen days later, after being released due to an overcrowded Los Angeles County Prison, he was arrested for possession of methamphetamine in Burbank, California. He served 90 years in jail.
On Twitter, many fans took the time to remind everyone to avoid the usage of meth.

Weiss debuted on Pee-wee’s Playhouse in 1986, but did not truly experience stardom until he was cast as Goldberg in The Mighty Ducks in 1992. Weiss also managed to land roles as recurring characters in various 90s television series, such as Saved By The Bell and Boy Meets World.
His bail is set at $52,500.
This makes me so sad hope he can get the strength and get help
