The way the Mets have been playing the past few years, is this really a punishment or are you just encouraging more “fans” to duplicate this action to also get themselves banned?
A streaker who disrupted a New York Mets game by jumping onto Citi Field naked except for a stuffed monkey tied around his waist is banned from the ballpark for life. Craig Coakley wore only a stuffed monkey tied around his waist when he went streaking back in May.
Prosecutors say Craig Coakley of Queens pleaded guilty Thursday to interfering with a sporting event. He must pay a $1,000 fine and $2,000 in civil penalties to the New York Mets. He also has to complete 20 days of community service by Dec. 15.
District Attorney Richard A. Brown said in a statement that Coakley’s antics cost him dearly – “perhaps the worse punishment for any true Mets fan.”
