Canadian trio busted for stealing Hummer at Olympics

Olympic Skier Arrested After Drunkenly Stealing a Hummer in South Korea

But a statement from Canada's Olympic team subsequently identified the trio as Olympian David Duncan, his wife Maja, and William Ryan Raine, the team's ski-cross high-performance director.

Canadian Olympic Committee chief executive Chris Overholt confirmed the incident occurred but refused to name the people involved.

The group were met with a frosty reception when stopped by police less than hour later, with all three found inside intoxicated, South Korean police said. The 48-year-old manager was allegedly driving the stolen vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

Canadian ski cross competitor Dave Duncan was arrested for allegedly stealing a vehicle after a nigh out drinking with his wife and a manager.

"Words are not enough to express how sorry I am", he said in his statement, adding he let his teammates down and that he also wanted to apologize to the owner of the vehicle.

Duncan finished eighth in the ski cross in Pyeongchang, topping his 24th-placed finish in Sochi in 2014.




The team's official slogan for Pyeongchang was: "Be Virtuous, Be Victorious, be Olympic".

An investigator with the Gangwon Provincial Police Department told The Canadian Press the two Canadians and an American woman were still in custody Saturday night in Gangneung.

"I would like to apologize profusely for my inexcusable actions", Raine said in a statement.

Daegwallyeong police allege Raine was behind the wheel and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.16. "All team members are expected to respect the laws of South Korea and all places we compete in around the world".

The news represents a huge embarrassment to the Canadian team, who were warned of their conduct on the eve of the Games following allegations that one of their coaches had a verbal altercation with a Russian athlete.
