Here is the recent timeline again:
2008: Shaun is in Drillbit Taylor, credited as “Bus Driver”
2008-2016: He does some shorts and internet series, is doing some standup comedy
2017: He is arrested for stealing $151 from a Fry’s Electronics. He is sentenced to 150 days in jail. He ended up serving 12 days in jail due to overcrowding. Five days after Shaun left jail, police arrested him again and charged him with possession of methamphetamine.
2018: He has more run-ins with the law, ends up going to rehab, but it doesn’t stick.
2020: Law enforcements arrest for him being under the influence of methamphetamine and residential burglary. Police find Shaun looking through a car in a garage that wasn’t his. At that point, his friend Drew Gallagher starts reaching out to media outlets. Gallagher starts telling Shaun’s story and raising money. He ends up raising more than $16,000.
Weiss also receives an offer and begins a two-year process to have new teeth put in.
2021: Weiss graduates from drug court. As a result, the court dismisses his burglary case being dismissed.
2022: Shaun finishes having his teeth replaced, and lands his first acting gig since Drillbit Taylor, playing a strung-out Vietnam vet who eventually gets help in the Jesus Revolution.
