If he stays on the straight and narrow and cleans up his act, Shaun White will skate all right.
The snowboarding champ has agreed to a plea deal with Nashville, Tenn., prosecutors that will see him seek alcohol treatment, perform 24 hours of community service and pay restitution in exchange for having charges of public intoxication and misdemeanor vandalism against him dismissed.

The day's top national and international news.
Per published reports, the Nashville District Attorney's Office confirmed White appeared in court Wednesday, though no word exactly what plea he entered.
The case stems from the 26-year-old's Sept. 16 arrest at a Nashville hotel when police allege he pulled a fire alarm, forcing all the guests to be evacuated, and then was caught destroying a hotel phone. When cops arrived they found the two-time Olympic gold medalist banged up after he fell into a fence evading a fellow citizen who tried to stop him from fleeing.
The Flying Tomato was taken into custody and ended up hospitalized with a minor cut to his head and a shiner under his left eye.
A lawyer for Shaun could not be reached for comment.
