NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Nashville judge is delaying the public intoxication and vandalism case against two-time Olympic gold medalist snowboarder Shaun White.

White is accused of destroying a phone at a Nashville hotel and hitting his head, which required him to go to the hospital.

Officers responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel at 2 a.m. on Sept. 16 after a drunken man identified as White pulled a fire alarm, forcing the hotel to evacuate guests.

White won a gold medal in Turin at the 2006 Olympics and in 2010 at the Vancouver Games. He is an action sports superstar, whether skateboarding during the summer or snowboarding in the winter. The 26-year-old White is also a multimillionaire with a clothing line and video game.

A judge delayed the case Wednesday until Nov. 20.
