Vandalism charged

Tue., Sept. 18, 2012, midnight

A police report says two-time Olympic gold medalist snowboarder Shaun White was charged with vandalism after an employee at a Nashville, Tenn., hotel saw him break a phone there. According to a Nashville police affidavit, White was given the opportunity to sign a misdemeanor citation and refused. He is charged with vandalism of $500 or less. Asked about the early Sunday incident, Lowe’s Vanderbilt Hotel manager Tom Negri said Monday in a statement that the hotel is committed to the safety and confidentiality of its guests. The statement didn’t identify White and referred all questions to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department. – AP
