Australian streaker fined for running on the pitch

An Aussie streaker, Alex James was fined and jailed for a week for his naked run across the ground in Pallekele during the final session of the 1st day of ongoing Test Match between Sri Lanka and Australia.

The funny part was that he did this to find some entertainment for himself. Footage shows that the man jumped over the fence, stripped and ran across the covers brought on to protect the ground from rain. He completed his run without any trouble and the cops arrested him just before he tried leaving the stadium.

“He was charged on two counts – drunken behaviour at a public place and indecent exposure,” an official at the Kandy magistrate’s court told AFP by telephone. “He was also fined 3,000 rupees ($20)”
