"Professional skateboarder"? What a friggin joke.

Larry Altman should be embarassed at writing such a piece. Larry your tongue in cheek and almost hero characterization of this HS dropout loser is a disservice to the young people of ths community.

This ADULT's actions are irresponsible. Not to mention the police manpower wasted. He probably has no health insurance so I am sure the tax payer picked up the cost for his 3 day psyche evaluation.

Shame on you larry Altman.

He's 24 years old and lives in a 2 story house in Redondo Beach. I would say he didn't do that bad considering the fact he dropped outta high school.
Let's check in with him again at age 48 and see how he's doing.

Hell yea, good sh*t Jeremy...living the good life. Smoking herb has nothing to do with anything here all you commenterís, president Clinton smoked herb, so I donít want to hear it. Smoke a fattie. And as far as shrooming, let him be! Only thing he did has disturb the peace, not cool. Take your trip in house stud, or throw on some head phones and trip out and enjoy. This kid is a very successful skateboarder, top 10 out of all of them out there, he's living the good life and sounds like the rest of you are just hating...skate or die, smoke a blunt and eat a fat infested mushroom cap, life is good! Just keep your shorts on next time big guy!

The first thing I think of when I see a story like this.....poor naked, christian, skateborder, perched naked on his roof is...DAMN, I miss everything.
Leagalizing weed would NOT get any prison guards fired, the prison/ county jail system is sooo overpopulated, there are more then enough criminals to go around, even without weed.
Think of the economy boost if we taxed weed. Do you know how much money a bar makes?
There are far more pro's then con's to legalizing weed.

THIS YOUNG MAN NEEDS HELP WITH HIS ADDICTION AND NEEDS TO STAY AWAY FROM YOUNG KIDS WHO MAY IDOLIZE HIM FOR HIS SKATEBOARD ABILITY. IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT THE SKATEBOARD INDUSTRY IS ONE OF THE LAST IN THE SPORTING WORLD TO OFFER HELP TO THESE YOUNG KIDS AND INFORCE A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY REGARDING DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO. I SEE THE SKATERDUDES INLISTING THE YOUNG BOYS ALL THE TIME TO SKATE AND PARTY AND IT ONLY TAKES A YEAR OR TWO AND THEIR LIVES ARE RUINED BY DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. MISERY LOVES COMPANY SO BEWARE OF YOUR YOUNG SONS FALLING INTO THE SKATER,PARTY SCENE. I PRAY FOR THIS YOUNG MAN TO GET A GRIP ON HIS ADDICTION AND SEEK BETTER ROLE MODELS SO HE CAN LEARN TO BE ONE HIMSELF IN THE FUTURE.

Also legalize the mushrooms he took. They were also made by God. The same goes for opium, it is also one of God's creations. If all of used these drugs we would all love each other. There would be no more wars. We could just all lay around smoking weed and having orgies.

Legalize what was made by GOD. Legalize the production and sale of marijuana to adults.
Allow bars to sell marijuana under the same laws as alcohol.
End the drug dealers in our schools and the easy access children have to marijuana.
End the cartel killings. The cartels murdered 6,000 people last year in order to protect their cash flows from selling marijuana into the U.S. Another 2,600 people were murdered by them so far this year. We cannot have this on our conscience.
Legalize marijuana!

Larry Altman, you are a hero to reporters everywhere. A-s-s-hats like Hiro and More DB Excellence wouldn't recognize a good story it crawled up inside them and set up camp.
This, my ignorant friends, is called a "talker." It's the kind of story shared around the office in the morning and passed around via e-mail.
Other examples include man/horse love, horrific trunk murders, sex shop glory holes, birds being smuggled in hollowed-out legs, people who eat dogs and many other oddball stories that are a part of your narrow world.
And this story: Professional skateboarder. Naked. On 'shrooms. On the roof. Preaching crazy god talk. Rolls joint in front of reporter.
You know you've already told half a dozen people about this story. Gotcha, sucker.

This kid is a kook. I don't think he's a good representation of skateboarders, and I don't want people to think that all skateboarders act this kid. A few skaters may be as dumb as Rogers, but the majority of skateboarders are not idiots. For example, Ocean Howell is receiving his PhD from Berkley and has authored many articles that have been published in peer reviewed academic journals.

In addition, I hope some of Rogers corporate sponsors drop him, this guy needs a reality check. Someone needs to tell him skateboarding is about skateboarding not being about trying to become a rapper/movie star and doing drugs.

... sad, if he kept his head straight he coulda been something, his part in the PLWHL was good and his part in the Girl video was amazing, what a waste of talent.

I know hippie's who like having the freedom to ride little boards around, I know hessians who like riding big boards around, I know hip-hop kids who like riding average 7.75 boards around.
All skateboarders do is vandalize property and take drugs. They need to start pulling their pants up, tucking in their shirts, get proper haircuts and SHAPE UP!

Sorry DAD, we will get right on it! Maybe we should join a gang instead? Skateboarding is not only a great physical sport to stay healthy and keep you in shape, but keeps kids busy instead of joining gangs and getting into trouble....your comment is garbage "all they do is vandalize and take drugs" come on man, get a life....

Legalize pot and besides drunk drivers there would be people hallucinatingon the streets and while drilving the roads. Yes, pot is illegal for a reason. I never knew a "pot head" who contributed anything respectable to civilization. There should be more information for kids and teens and for anyone else who thinks pot is the answer. Paranoia, anxiety attacks, lack of motivation and mental illness are common symptoms in smoking this crap.
