Pac-12 Shame: Ten UCLA, Arizona Players Suspended After Bench-Clearing Brawl

Blame the streaker:

The brawl began near the end of the second half after a streaker dressed as a referee disrupted play sneaking on the field and disrobing as he ran around. The players, who were lined up across from one another, apparently began exchanging words, then pushes, shoves and punches.

Both sidelines emptied as secondary fights broke out and spread across the field before cooler heads finally prevailed.

So they're charging the streaker with a felony:

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.

He says he wanted to be a contestant on a show called Wipeout, and the application asked for a description of the craziest thing you've ever done.

Thay're charging him with a felony ostensibly because he wore a referee's uniform. He was wearing a referee's knickers with no socks. They don't wear knickers anymore, but even when they did their hairy legs weren't visible. That get-up was not very convincing, and there are probably a few people dressed like that at every football game.

I think they're just mad and embarrassed about the brawl.

Another thing to consider: The people charging this guy with a felony are likely part of the generation that invented streaking. It used to be that you couldn't watch any sporting event without a streaker showing up.


The brawl:

The streaker:

Nice tackle. That cop must have played some serious ball back in the day. Exit question: Which one of you Morons did this?
