Originally posted 09/18/2012 12:25PM

Olympic snowboarder Shaun White issued an apology Tuesday after his arrest for public intoxication and vandalism.

"I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests," he says in a statement, which he posted on his Facebook page. "I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I'm truly sorry for my poor behavior."

White, 26, a two-time gold medalist, was arrested early Sunday morning in Nashville, where he was attending musician Patrick Carney's wedding.

Police say White pulled a hotel fire alarm, causing evacuations, then attempted to flee the scene while being pursued by a citizen, who had alerted police. The chase ended when White fell backwards and hit his head against a fence, according to police.

Leonardo DiCaprio must have one heck of a smile.

His ex-girlfriend Bar Refaeli says a nice grin "with beautiful teeth is the most attractive thing" in the opposite sex.

"Teeth are the first thing I look at," the Israeli supermodel – ranked at the very top of Maxim's Hot 100 – tells the magazine in its September issue. "With today's orthodontists, I don't understand why people wouldn't fix them."

With pearly whites out of the way, Refaeli, 27, who is currently linked to professional snowboarder Shaun White, also requires that men don't act "too cool for school."
