By now, you've seen most of the video, you've read all the message boards and you've sat atop a chopped tree stump, envisioning all the tricks you wish you would have seen flicked or spun over Wallenberg—or Wallieingberg, as Jimmy Carlin accidentally called it the day after it all went down.
But, be grateful—it was amazing and proof of how far skating's come in the last five years. Click below to see some photos of the event, including links in the captions to more footage and coverage you probably haven't seen. Enjoy. Wallenberg Secondhand.
In what can only be described as an unusual incident, Jereme Rogers was taken into police custody Monday morning after police apprehended him ranting nude atop the roof of his home in Redondo Beach. Apparently, Rogers had, "ate some `mushrooms' and bugged out."
Props to Los Angeles' Daily Breeze for getting the scoop on this weird and amazing story. J-Rog upped the ante while being interviewed about the incident as he prepared another illegal substance in the reporter's presence. I'll say one thing for the skater and aspiring rapper, he certainly isn't boring.
Will Jereme show up in NYC for Manny Mania this weekend? Will he keep his clothes on? We'll keep you posted.
