Jereme Rogers was arraigned Friday on a charge of criminal mischief. Prosecutors say he was found naked in the hallway of his hotel, with broken glass and ripped paintings strewn around him and cuts on his hands.
He is accused of causing at least $2,500 damage at the Affinia Shelburne Hotel. The hotel did not immediately comment on the incident.
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.
He was arrested a couple of years ago after similar antics in California. He was busted after delivering a naked rant from a rooftop in Redondo Beach. He told cops the he was bugging out after eating psychedelic mushrooms.
