Olympic Medalist Packs Up after Biting Photo

Olympic Medalist Packs Up after Biting Photo

2/20/2010 9:03 AM PST
It seemed like innocent fun ... but these pictures of Olympic bronze medalist Scotty Lago proved a bit too much for Vancouver -- Scotty is packing up his newly-polished medal and leaving.

Scotty apologized to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association after we posted the photo -- taken on a public street with a crowd of people watching -- before volunteering to go home.

TMZ published the photo and apparently it didn't sit well with someone. He's a snowboarder for cryin' out loud. They should have cut him a break.
