Shaun Weiss, the actor famous for playing Goldberg in The Mighty Ducks movie franchise, was arrested for public intoxication in Northern California over the weekend, according to TMZ.

Law Enforcement say they arrested Goldberg, real name Shaun Weiss, Saturday morning right before 1 AM in Oroville, CA. He was transported and booked into the Butte County Jail.

"Weiss was arrested for being under the influence of drugs", the Oroville Public Safety Department wrote in a statement on Monday. Police in the area picked him up on a charge of public intoxication after he was found "behaving erratically" with a flashlight.

Oroville police Lt. Chris Nicodemus told People that Weiss was determined to be high on drugs, though a blood sample was not taken to determine the substance. According to TMZ, he was released after a few hours and was not cited.

It is now burning mostly in steep and rough terrain along the north bank of the Middle Fork of the Stanislaus River. The fire has now spread to more than 163,000 acres and is only 45 percent contained, according to the department.

Weiss has been in trouble with the law before, including an arrest a year ago for possession of meth, which came on the heels of an arrest for stealing merchandise from an electronics store.

However he later went back behind bars when he was arrested for possession of suspected methamphetamine after reports were made of a suspicious male stumbling around near the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank. He was sentenced to 150 days in Los Angeles County jail before being released due to overcrowding.

Shaun's career was dotted with notable roles as a child, including the aforementioned Mighty Ducks films, as well as Heavyweights, and Freaks & Geeks.
