Winter Olympics 2018: Canadian athlete arrested, according to report”

Duncan, 35, competes in ski cross and although he's from London, Ont., he lives and trains in Whistler. Things got out of hand, apparently, as the three of them ended up in Hummer that didn't belong to them. Duncan, a ski cross athlete for Team Canada, and the two others were released, but are not allowed to leave South Korea while prosecutors look into what was called an "expedited" case, according to CBC's Stephanie Jenzer.

The driver of the vehicle - who was not named, but was reportedly not the skier -had a blood alcohol level of 0.16 when arrested.

The Canadian Olympic Committee, ski cross racer Dave Duncan, his wife Maja and technical coach William Raine all apologized for the boozy joyride that landed the three briefly in jail.

A joint statement from the Duncans offering an apology did not offer specifics, saying only their behavior 'was not up to the standards expected of us as members of the Canadian Olympic Team or as Canadians'.

Raine offered a separate apology, adding his remorse for the owner of the vehicle.

"Words are not enough to express how sorry I am", he claimed.

Raine also apologized in a statement to "teammates, friends and my family", as well as the owner of the vehicle, calling his actions "inexcusable".

The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games acknowledged the incident and said those involved cooperated with authorities.

"We can confirm that an incident occurred involving police around midnight Friday, early morning Saturday", they said at first. "We are deeply disappointed in the behaviors of these individuals", Overholt said.

"We take this situation, obviously, very seriously". "Until we know the results of the investigation, we're not going to be able to provide further information at this time".

The frigid Pyeongchang weather proved too much for the three, who said they took a vehicle they found unattended with the engine running because it was too cold outside, according to the South Korean police source, who was not authorized to speak to the media.
