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.
