The 2018 Winter Olympic Games are just under a day away from wrapping up. We're less than 24 hours away from the closing ceremony after several weeks of competition.

This year's games might be ending in controversy for one country. Part of Canada's team has reportedly gotten into some trouble.

According to a report by CBC, there has been an arrested involving Team Canada. An athlete, his wife and a Canadian coach were reportedly arrested last night.

From the report:

 Canadian ski cross athlete David Duncan, his wife Maja, and Ski Cross High Performance Director Willy Raine, were arrested and released Saturday after police in South Korea say a vehicle was stolen, with the driver legally impaired at the time of arrest.

Raine was allegedly behind the wheel with a .16 blood alcohol level, which is three times the legal limit of .05 in South Korea, according to the report. He and Duncan has reportedly been restricted from leaving South Korea, but its not known if their passports have been confiscated at this time.

Canadian Olympic Committee CEO Chris Overholt confirmed the incident and gave the following statement.

"We have information that individuals attached to our team were involved in the investigation and they're cooperating, and we take this matter, of course, very, very seriously.We're in contact with the authorities, as well as the Canadian Embassy, and we'll provide an update when it's appropriate to do so."

The closing ceremony is set for Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m. ET. NBC will carry a full broadcast of the closing ceremony at 8:00 p.m. ET.
