NEW YORK, N.Y. - A professional skateboarder has been accused of ripping pictures off the walls at a New York City hotel in a naked rampage.

Jereme Rogers was arraigned Friday on a charge of criminal mischief. Prosecutors say he was found naked in the hallway of his hotel. Broken glass and ripped paintings were strewn around him, and he had cuts on his hands.

Rogers is accused of causing at least US$2,500 damage at the Affinia Shelburne Hotel. The hotel hasn't commented. A call to Rogers' lawyer hasn't been returned.

Rogers is 26. He retired from the sport in 2009 to become a rap artist but announced in a YouTube video a year later that he was making a comeback.
