The 'Mighty Ducks' Goalie Has Been Banged Up For Petty Theft

Actor Shaun Weiss, famous for playing the goalie Goldberg in the Mighty Ducks film series, has been sentenced to 150 days in Los Angeles County Jail.

Earlier this month Shaun was at a Fry's Electronics and stole $151 (£114) in merchandise, according to TMZ.

Two days after his arrest, he pleaded no contest to petty theft.

It's been reported that he got banged up because the conviction was his second for the crime.

His manager, Don Gibble, confirmed the sentence to Page Six on Monday.

He said: "Hopefully when [Shaun] gets out he will go to rehab so he can stay sober.

"He hopes jail will help him, and maybe while he is in jail he will write something."

Weiss has tried his hand at performing stand-up in the past so he might be hoping the experience could provide him with some material.

The 38-year-old has appeared in Heavyweights, Freaks and Geeks, The King of Queens and The Tony Danza Show .

But he's most famous for his role in cult kids' film series The Mighty Ducks, in which he appeared alongside Emilio Estevez. Celebrity Net Worth site lists Weiss' as $150,000 (£113,500).

Although the Mighty Ducks franchise received negative reviews when the movies were put out in the 90s, there's a lot of love for the films on Twitter:

Released by Walt Disney Pictures between 1992-96, the films revolve around a Twin Cities ice hockey team, composed of young players that stick together throughout various challenges.

The trilogy's commercial success even paved the way for the creation of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (now known as the Anaheim Ducks) NHL team.
