Shaun White is one sorry guy.

After getting arrested for allegedly trashing his Nashville hotel room during a drunken rant, the Olympic snowboarding champ issued a public apology Tuesday.

"I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests," he wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday. "I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I'm truly sorry for my poor behavior."

According to reports, White, 26, was in Nashville to attend musician Patrick Carney's wedding, when he was arrested for alleged vandalism. He allegedly also pulled a fire alarm in the hotel, causing its evacuation, and hit his head on a fence - giving him a nasty black eye that can be seen in White's less-than-flattering mug shot.
