Posted on Saturday, February 24, 2018 10:42 AM

Multiple media outlets are saying a Canadian athlete was allegedly arrested at the Pyeongchang Olympics. 

They claim South Korean police brought a ski cross racer and at least one other Canadian into custody on charges of drunk driving and stealing a car. 

It's alleged that the car was driven to the Althletes Village at the Games. 

In a statement released by the Canadian Olympic Committee, David Duncan and his wife Maja Margrethe Duncan admits the two showed what they call poor judgement, and apologizes for their actions.

The statement doesn't specify any details, only referring to an "incident" at the Pyeongchang games.  

Ski Cross High Performance Director Willy Raine also apologizes in the statement, adding he wants to apologize to the owner of the vehicle involved as well. 

CEO of the Canadian Olympic Committee Chris Overholt says the Korean police have finished their investigation and the three have been released.
