Shaun Weiss, an actor best known for playing goalie Greg Goldberg in “The Mighty Ducks,” was arrested on Sunday on burglary and drug charges.
Weiss, 41, was booked into the Yuba County Jail and is being held on $52,500 bail. Police said he was found in the garage of a house in Marysville, California, northwest of San Francisco.
When police entered the garage, they found Weiss “inside of the homeowner’s vehicle,” a press release by the Marysville Police Department said.
“Weiss forced entry to gain access into the vehicle by shattering a window. 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 statement continued.
“Weiss displayed symptoms of being under the influence of methamphetamine and said he did not reside at this residence. Weiss also said the vehicle he was filtering through was not his.”
Police added: “After further investigation, it was determined that Weiss starred in several movie’s [sic] and television series.”
Weiss has a history of arrests for drug use and theft. But social media users were still shocked by the news, and particularly the beloved former child actor’s apparently meth-addled mug shots.

Many commenters took the opportunity to offer advice, like, “don’t do meth kids.”
From “Mighty Ducks’ goalie to drug addict
Weiss was previously arrested in August 2018 in northern California after police found him allegedly high on drugs. Oroville Police Lt. Chris Nicodemus said at the time that Weiss was found with three other individuals “behaving erratically with flashlights.”
Police held him for a few hours until he sobered up and then released him without charges, but his mug shot drew public attention in that case as well.
In July 2017, Weiss was also charged with misdemeanor meth possession in California and sentenced to 90 days in jail.
Weiss last appeared on screen in the 2016 short Netflix & Chill, according to IMDB. His most widely-seen performance since the “Mighty Ducks” trilogy, which was released between 1992 and 1996, was a small role in 2008’s “Drillbit Taylor” starring Owen Wilson.
