According to Canadian broadcaster CBC, the skier, 35, is alleged to have stolen a Hummer after drinking at a bar in Daegwallyeong-myeon with his wife and manager.

"We expect our athletes and team members to conduct themselves responsibly and in keeping with our Canadian and Olympic values", said Overholt. It was likely the group would be released upon payment of a fine, police said.

Initially, it was reported by the CBC that the three of the accused were taken into custody for driving an idle vehicle and driving it to the Olympics village.

Raine also apologized for his "inexcusable actions", saying that "words are not enough to express how sorry I am".

At a news conference on Saturday, Canadian Olympic Committee chief executive Chris Overholt said: "We can confirm that an incident occurred involving the police around midnight Friday or early morning Saturday". "The weather was cold, and the vehicle was running so we took it", Duncan reportedly said, according to Yonhap.

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

The Duncans said in a statement: "We are deeply sorry".

A concluding story to the games that Canada will undoubtedly look on with some dismay, Duncan was not among those to have claimed one of the country's 28 medals. We are deeply disappointed in the behaviours in these individuals. "We take this matter seriously".
