NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two-time Olympic snowboarding champion Shaun White has apologized for the "unwise choices" he made that left him facing charges of public intoxication and vandalism.

Police responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tenn., at 2 a.m. Sunday. A drunken man identified as White pulled a fire alarm, forcing the hotel to evacuate all guests. An employee also reported seeing White destroy a hotel phone.

The 26-year-old snowboard star said Tuesday on his Facebook page he wants to apologize for "any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests. He adds that he was "celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I'm truly sorry for my poor behavior."
