Last Friday night at the B.C. Lions-Montreal Alouettes Canadian Football League game in Vancouver, a nude streaker got loose on the field and proceeded to juke through six security guards before finally being dragged down.
So what were the consequence of the gentleman’s actions? A stadium ban but no criminal charges.
The streaker facing a ban from Empire Field won’t face criminal charges, according to Vancouver police.
The man now faces a ban from future Lions games, but escaped possible indecent exposure and mischief charges.
“We gave that person some advice on future conduct and basically told him to put on his clothes and get out of here,” said VPD spokesperson Const. Jana McGuiness. “To criminally charge someone is a really big step. It seems like a bit much.”
PNE staff wouldn’t comment on the lack of charges, but intend to distribute the man’s identity and photo to security and gate staff to keep him out of the temporary stadium.
Anyone seen Merrill Hoge lately?
