Usually football game “streakers” just want to run on, and then off, the field as quickly as possible to get their 15 minutes of fame. Not this guy. He’s just walking around shirtless, picks up the game ball, and then, well, watch the video to see what happens next. Hard to tell from the video if this guy is drunk, stoned or just crazy, but he does put up quite a fight.
Placer High School won the football game, but all the buzz is about the bone-crunching tackle an off-duty Placer County sheriff’s lieutenant made on a shirtless spectator who interrupted the game. The well-built Patrick Hurley, 25, walked onto the field during the second quarter of Friday’s game at Colfax High School. Shirtless and with his pants hanging dangerously low, Hurley carried a bottle of white liquid that he poured out before throwing it menacingly toward the officials.
A video of the incident shows Hurley picking up the game ball before he is tackled from behind by Troy Minton-Sander, a former player for Placer High and father of a current team member, Stone Sander.
Usually sports streakers wait until their is a time-out, half time, or some other stoppage in play before running out onto the field. And really, this guy is less of a streaker than a dumbass fan who actually runs onto the field during play in Saturday’s Miami v. Florida State game. He starts about mid-field, heads toward the end zone, takes his shirt off, manages to elude one security guy before being slammed to the ground by another. We have two videos of the incident, both taken by fans in the stands as the network TV crews always cut away from this kind of action.
The first video shows the incident in its entirety. The second video also shows some of the action, but also shows the tackling security guard getting congratulated on the awesome hit by his co-workers.
Usually sports streakers are naked, or mostly naked, by the time they hit the field
Not this guy at the Texas Tech v. West Virginia game over the weekend. He hits the field and then starts doing a very animated striptease. The good news? He only gets down to his boxers before a gaggle of cops and stadium security guys take him to the turf, hard.
