A security video and shoe prints led to Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, who was accused of setting off a fire extinguisher at a ski resort, though there was no fire, police said.

A police report said a security camera recorded someone setting off the extinguisher in a game room Friday at the Beaver Run Resort in shaun-white.jpg Breckenridge, a ski town about 60 miles west of Denver.

White's clothes and shoes appeared to match the person on the video, and his shoes matched footprints left in the powder from the fire extinguisher, the report said.

White, 21, dubbed "The Flying Tomato" for his red hair, was cited on a charge of second-degree criminal tampering. He was ordered to appear in municipal court on March 10.

The report said White's breath smelled of alcohol when police spoke with him.

Repeated calls to White's telephone in Carlsbad, Calif., yielded a busy signal Tuesday.

Also Friday, he was questioned by deputies about a stolen 2000 Audi recovered outside the resort "because he was in the vicinity of the car," Summit County sheriff's spokeswoman Paulette Horr said. White was ruled out as a suspect.

"He wasn't arrested. All we did was interview him," she said.
