Arizona Streaker Charged with Felony, May Get Year and a Half of Jail


Jake Lancow, the Arizona streaker who posed as a referee is being made an example:

Jace Lankow, an undergraduate at the University of Arizona could face up to one and half years in jail after being charged with a class six felony for criminal impersonation.

“The Conference is extremely disappointed in the actions of the student-athletes involved in this incident,” Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement. “It is unacceptable behavior and violated Conference rules, as well as NCAA fighting rules.

“I have taken these actions today because it is imperative that we hold our student-athletes and coaches to the highest standards of sportsmanship.”

Lancow's underwear-clad dash across the field inspired a brawl between players which resutlred in 10 suspensions.

  2. A year and a half? This country has come seriously unhinged. Impersonating a police officer and committing a crime, of course, but a referee?? [Side note: don't you have to be nude to be a streaker?]

  3. Wow what a cute guy. The overreaction is shameful, though. Jeez can't anyone joke around anymore? He didn't even get naked.

  5. The sight of him gave the players hard-ons and they couldn't go on with the game.

  6. A year and a half for playing a childish prank??....while all the crooked CEO's and politicians get off scott free. The justice system in this country is becoming a joke.

  10. This story reminds me of this:

  11. A year and a half? This is the kind of "offense" that a reasonable person would think merited doing some community service at the university. This country is going to hell.

  12. A year and a half is ridiculous when Wall Street crooks who steal millions and billions get off with little or (mostly) nothing.

  13. In Arizona they have for profit prisons. Part of the corporate welfare system in the USA. Longer prison sentences mean big bucks for CEOs and more campaign donations for politicians, all at taxpayer expense. This is how American Capitalism works these days.

  14. Also, Arizona uses prisoners as workers (slaves). They have made their immigration laws so strict, that's the only way to get cheap labor for menial jobs.

    However, great ass. Really great ass.

  16. People take sports WAY too seriously.

  17. Agreed, Jesrad. In my day, you weren't streaking unless you were totally naked. And in his case, it was a shame that his fine bod wasn't showcased in kind.

    Maybe he was sentenced so long because the cops were mad he wasn't naked. Just sayin'.

  20. College athletics is all about profits, and the profit motive discourages playfulness. I'm sure the old Soviet athletic machine would have considered this sentence waay too light for somebody daring to mock the sacredness of Sport. as Holden Caulfield pinned it, "the athletic bastards always stick together".

  21. That's ridiculous to charge a streaker with a felony. I remember what you did in college.

    Posted by: JoeInSF | Oct 24, 2011 11:34:13 AM

  22. He won't get anything except maybe a fine.
    A) He's in his U/W so it doesn't even count as indecent exposure in the state of Arizona so to even call this streaking is a bit overboard.
    B) The official is a sports official not anyone of any safety or legislative capacity so that's gonna fly out the window too.

    The only real offense was the 'over charges' made by police in order to make it look more salacious than it is.

  23. If I had an ass like that, I'd be running around showing it off, too!

    Jail time? For that? And Lindsay Lohan stumbles around a free woman.

  24. I want to be on the jury.

  25. In Texas they'd hang him.
