A man who starred in 90s hockey film The Mighty Ducks was arrested yesterday after allegedly breaking into a house while high on methamphetamine.
Shaun Weiss, 41, who played Greg Goldberg in the 1992 movie, is accused of breaking into a garage in Van Nuys, Calif. before smashing through the windshield of a car inside.
‘Weiss forced entry to gain access into the vehicle by shattering a window,’ the Marysville Police Department said in a statement.

‘Officers noticed shattered glass on the ground and observed that the passenger window to the vehicle was broken.’
Officers swarmed the garage and ordered Weiss, who displayed signs of being high on meth, to get out of the vehicle.
Despite featuring in some small movie roles after The Mighty Ducks, including 2008 film Drillbit Taylor, Weiss has mainly made news in recent years for his criminal behaviour.
