AFL Streaker Cops $50k Fine And Two Weeks Compulsory Quarantine
A battered ego and a $50,000 fine topped off with two weeks of compulsory quarantine.
A lesson for the latest AFL streaker: Don't do that again.
Last night during the Geelong vs Collingwood game in Perth, a 28-year-old man jumped the Optus Stadium fencing and ran onto the field.
A bet? Trying to be funny? Or seeking some form of attention? We're still not quite sure why. One thing is for certain, though: he's paid a hefty price for his action.
After being quickly tackled to the turf by arena security, the topless bloke was whisked away and slapped with a $50k fine and is awaiting news on a suspected stadium ban.

West Australian reporter Caitlyn Rintoul tweeted: "That $30 ticket just got a whole lot more expensive".
Usually people streaking during events in Australia would cop a fine of around $5,500, but because of the heightened COVID-19 restrictions currently facing every sports code, State Emergency Act conditions have been put in place.
Technically, that means last night's crisp Optus Stadium grass was declared a quarantine zone.
As a result of his idiotic act, the Mandurah man breached strict coronavirus regulations and will have to spend the next two weeks in quarantine.
