LONDON (AP) An Australian rower has been sent home from the Olympics after damaging two storefront windows outside London.

The Australian Olympic Committee says Josh Booth, a member of the men's eight that finished last in Wednesday's final, had apologized to two shop owners and would pay $2,175 to repair windows broken in the incident. He will not be charged by police.

AOC spokesman Mike Tancred says the 21-year-old Booth, who had completed his rowing events, would return to Australia on Saturday.
