Just three months ago, news broke that Shaun Weiss of Mighty Ducks and Heavyweights fame was homeless and dealing with ‘life-threatening’ problems after he was arrested in California for breaking into a home and shattering a car windshield while high on meth.
The incident was just the latest in a string of a string of burglaries and drug possession, with those close to the 41-year-old claiming he was in “survival mode,” dealing with several ailments including diabetes, mental illness and drug addiction.
Sadly, Weiss’ previous inability to stay on the straight-and-narrow has been stunted by the homeless people he surrounds himself with. TMZ reported in January that every time he manages to get his hands on some clothing or money, he gets attacked by other homeless people and robbed. A friend even bought him a van to live in, but it was set on fire by some shady characters.
Things were looking dire for the former childhood star, but in a fortuitous turn of events and after a stint in rehab following an arrest in March, Weiss appears to look healthier than he has in years. Below he’s pictured having breakfast with his friend, Drew Gallagher, last month.
For perspective, this is Weiss’ mugshot from January.
And from an August 2018 arrest.
Obviously, you can only take so much hope from one photo, but hopefully Weiss can pull an Artie Lange and come out on the other side of this.
