Friend sets GoFundMe page for troubled star


A GoFundMe fundraising page has been set up to aid “Mighty Ducks” star Shaun Weiss, who was arrested last week in upstate California.

Weiss was charged with burglary and for being under the influence of meth by Marysville, California, police Sunday morning and his mugshot sparked national concern for the onetime child star.

Drew Gallagher, who says he met Weiss five years ago when they were working on a TV pilot together, started the GoFundMe page in Weiss’ name and is seeking to raise $25,000 (currently there are $5,000 in pledges).

Gallagher says the money will go toward appropriate medical, psychological and dental assistance. Weiss is being held in a Yuba County jail on $52,500 bail following his arrest.

“Shaun needs serious help,” Gallagher tells USA TODAY. “I’m asking people to help me help him. Wherever the need is most, that’s where the money will go. He’s never hurt anyone, he’s such a good dude. He’s a pure human.”

Former child star Shaun Weiss was arrested on Sunday by Marysville, California police.

Sunday’s arrest came after a homeowner in the small northern California city of Marysville, outside of Sacramento, alerted police to “an unknown male inside his garage that did not belong there,” according to a police media release.

Police found Weiss filtering through the resident’s car in the garage after he had apparently gained entry by breaking the passenger window, and arrested him.
