Olympic snowboarder sent home for shenanigans

Snowboarder Scotty Lago was sent home from the Olympics for having a little too much fun with his bronze medal. Lago was photographed sporting his Olympic bronze medal below the waist, with a female fan kissing the medal. The offending pic caused U.S. Olympic officials to go into spin control mode. Lago, who won bronze in the half-pipe, was given an ultimatum from the USOC: apologize and leave, or be ejected from the Olympic Village. Lago, chose the obvious and headed home. He tweeted this upon his return from the games:

"Got home this morning to all my homies," he said on his Twitter site. "Such a good Olympic experience. Keeping my medal in a safe spot for now haha."
