JEREME ROGERS: APPARENTLY SUFFERING FROM A CASE OF THE MUNCHIES
The Torrance Daily Breeze newspaper prides iteself in covering the news “From LAX to L.A. Harbor.” Friday they got an exclusive interview with professional skateboarder Jereme Rogers.
Rogers had just been nabbed by the police after literally running around naked on his neighbor’s roof. Responding officers say that Rogers wasn’t charged with a crime but was placed under observation for potentially being a threat to himself. They describe Rogers as naked on top of the roof “…having fragmented, interrupted conversations with people that weren’t there.”
Rogers was taken into police protection for his own safety. He told law enforcement that he was under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms. On Friday, Rogers, skateboardings 2006 Rookie of the Year, apologized to his fans because he “ate some mushrooms and bugged out.”
Rogers, who describes himself as a high school dropout and born-again Christian, conducted the interview with the Torrance paper while smoking a marijuana joint. He described his rooftop nakedness as “just something that happened.” The paper also describes how Rogers “has no problem talking about how he got his skill in skateboarding from God, and then dropping an F-bomb.” Rogers also pulled out a California medical marijuana card in front of the reporter then began smoking marijuana saying, “I have a medical card. I’m a weed smoker.”
Despite all this, the newspaper describes Rogers as having a “clean image” in the skating community and being a “role model to skaters all over the planet.”
