Apparently, those who paid the price of admission to nearby Pulaski High School's football game on Friday night got more than their money's worth:
17-year-old Pulaski teen faces disciplinary action, fines for streaking during football game
PULASKI — A 17-year-old Pulaski High School student is facing disciplinary action and possible court fines after he allegedly streaked across the high school
football field during a varsity game Friday night, authorities said today. Police Chief Randal Dunford said the 17-year-old male student disrupted the Pulaski-Bay Port by running across the field during the first quarter wearing only red shoes and a clown mask.
Dunford said officials were able to identify the suspect later using spectator video and photographs, as well as a tip from a school staffer. The suspect admitted pulling the stunt.
He could be fined nearly $1,000 if found guilty in municipal court of disorderly conduct and lewd behavior. Dunford said school administrators also were considering disciplinary action.
My personal thoughts:
I just want to know which "school staffer" was able to identify the naked young man's body, which he/she obviously only saw from the shins to the chin. Perhaps he/she should be questioned further!
(Only kidding--He is apparently on the swim team--people most like see him half-naked all the time.)
He apparently ran the length of the field as a play ended, launched himself over a 6' chain link fence, and disappeared into the woods, eluding his pursuers. Impressive. (He confessed when questioned at school today.) All because his friends dared him to do it.
Now that's confidence.
The comments from readers of this story in the Press Gazette are very entertaining. Here's a sample:
*believe me i saw the kid streaking. god already punished him more than any of us could.....his new nickname should be tiny....
*I was at the game supporting the Pirates and I want to tell you that was the best $4 I ever spent for entertainment. It was fricking hilarious. I don't know what was funnier watching the kid run on the field or watching the Keystone cops/Puaski PD chase him..
*Give him a medal! I've never had the courage at any point in my life to try something like that!
*Sounds pretty innocent when you consider the crap these high school kids are exposed to on TV these days!
*The way the system works they'll probably charge him with a misdaweiner and ban him from an education and going to college. LMAO and in mo This kid needs an "attaboy" for two reasons. First he had the balls to do it (no pun intended), and second he was not carjacking an elderly woman or holding up a convenience store. Good old fashioned clean fun. No Drugs, no guns, no alcohol, and last but not least, NO CLOTHES. Ground him for a week and call it a day!
Talk amongst yourselves.
