Olympic Snowboarder Cited for Setting Off Fire Extinguisher

Olympic snowboarder Shaun White has been cited for setting off a fire extinguisher at a Breckenridge lodge.

Here we have video of the August X–Games in Los Angeles, where White competed.

A Breckenridge police report says a security camera recorded someone setting it off in a game room on Friday.

White's clothes and shoes appeared to match what the person on the video was wearing.

The report also says White's shoes matched footprints left in the powder from the fire extinguisher.

Police cited white on a charge of second degree criminal tampering.

He was ordered to appear in municipal court on March 10th.
