They are all undefeated. You see this is why I gave up comedy because I realized a long time ago that it was something I could not make a career doing, and maybe that was for the best. Childhood movie stars have had a notorious reputation of struggling with drugs and alcohol  after all of the cameras stop recording and the fame fades away. Very few are able to adapt and go on the live happy lives. In the sad case of Shaun Weiss, the adorable chubby kid who played goalie Greg Goldberg in The Mighty Duck films, he also has had a tough time dealing with real life after stardom.

Weiss was arrested by patrolling officers in a business complex in Oroville, Calif who suspected that he was high on drugs at the time. He was held for a few hours until he sobered up and no blood test was taken during his confinement. Officers did note that Weiss was witty and upbeat during the entire encounter.  Weiss has been arrested before on drug charges, including meth possession, which has been known to visibly effect its users appearance making them look a lot older then they  actually are. He was also sentenced to 150 days for allegedly stealing $150 worth of merchandise from Fry’s Electronics, but only served 12 days due to overcrowding.

Shaun Weiss is still in his 30s and still has time to get it together, I hope he is able to.
