Per TMZ's report, Weiss was busted for public intoxication at 1 a.m. on Saturday in Northern California.

Despite this, his mugshot was still published on the Oroville Police Department's website - in keeping with the fairly standard but still fundamentally odd United States custom - and TMZ subsequently picked up the story.

"Hopefully when he gets out, he will go to rehab so he can stay sober", the former child star's rep said at the time. "He's been doing very well recently".

In the subsequent mugshot that was released, Weiss appears gaunt and thin with patches of gray in his beard, a far cry from the well-known actor.

According to Page Six, the drug charges landed Weiss a 90-day sentence in county jail. He was motivated to make money and work.

Weiss is only facing intoxication charges at this time, officials noted.

Weiss served 12 days in jail in 2017 after an arrest for possession of meth, according to TMZ.

The "Heavyweights" actor was sentenced to 90 days in county jail a year ago for possession of suspected methamphetamine in Burbank, California.

Shaun Weiss, now 38, looks nothing like the exuberant goaltender he played in the trilogy of 90s Disney sports movies.

A U.S. court initially sentenced him to 150 days in jail for that crime, but he wound up being released after just 12 days due to prison overcrowding, which is a horribly depressing sentence. Only in recent years has his career slowed down. As many of them get older, they tend to have major issues.
