“I Ate Some Mushrooms and Bugged Out”


jereme1Boston-born professional skater Jereme Rogers was taken to the UCLA Medical center near his home for 72 hours of observation earlier this week after taking to his roof, preaching naked to his neighbors all caused when he “ate some mushrooms and bugged out.”

Rogers, 24, who dropped out of high school to become a professional skater is extremely religious, featuring a number of tattoos with religious connotations.

On Monday at about 6:40 in the morning Rogers climbed the 20-30 feet to his roof, pulled off his boxers and started yelling and screaming. “It obviously was not an everyday experience. It was a very out-of-body experience. I’ve never had an experience like that. It was obviously something I shouldn’t have done,” Rogers told a local reporter as he rolled a marijuana joint in his bedroom. “It was just something that happened.”

Police lieutenant Jim Acquarelli was one of the officers who arrived on scene and reported that “[Rogers] would have fragmented, interrupted conversations with people that weren’t there. He never lost his balance. The potential was there for it. If he had taken a few negligible steps to the right, that would have impeded his balance and would have led to his demise.”

Rogers though felt much more confident in his balancing abilities, “I literally was walking on the edge,” he said. “[The neighbors] said my balance was amazing.”

Ultimately, Acquarelli, a former Catholic school teacher talked Rogers off the roof by speaking about spirituality with him. Rogers, who won the TransWorlds Rookie of the Year award in 2006 was taken to the hospital for observation but as of this time no charges have been filed.

As for the joint he was rolling, Rogers said that it is well known amongst his fans that he smokes, “Yeah, I’m rolling weed,” he said. “I have a medical card. I’m a weed smoker.”
