Man Charged After Taking A Leak Off SCG Roof During Wallabies Game
| Last updated
An Australian man has been arrested after footage emerged of him taking a leak off the roof of the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Secondly, kudos for getting up there.
Thirdly, the stadium roof looks nothing like a urinal.
That man got seriously lost on the way to the bathroom.
The incident happened as the Wallabies squared off against England in the third rugby Test of the summer series, and obviously, this lad didn’t want to miss any of the action.
In scenes that you wouldn’t believe unless there was footage going viral, the man was casually sitting on top of the Bill O’Reilly Stand.
But it gets better, or worse, as he begins to urinate in front of a packed SCG to the disgust and amusement of many.
Seriously, how did the stadium staff not catch on to this man climbing onto the roof?
You’d hate to be in the crowd below thinking it had just started raining.
As expected the 31-year-old has since been arrested and was taken to Surry Hills Police Station and slapped with two charges, according to 9News.
A NSW Police spokesperson told the outlet: "About 9.20pm, Saturday 16 July, a man was at a sporting stadium at Moore Park when he allegedly climbed onto the top of a scoreboard within the stadium, and onto the roof of a spectator's stand.
"Officers attached to Surry Hills Police Area Command and the Police Rescue attended and safely removed the man a short time later, before he was arrested."
They added that he was charged with 'behaving in [an] offensive manner in/near public place and climbing on buildings on scheduled lands without approval'.
He's since been granted conditional bail and is set to appear in court on 25 July where his fate will be decided by a judge.
A number of clips have emerged showing the unusual moment, with one shared by Instagram page Brown Cardigan receiving nearly 31,000 likes at the time of writing.
Alongside the video, the account wrote: "Trouble finding your seat mate?"
Hundreds of people have flocked to the comments section, with one writing: "The things you do to find a bit of reception."
Another joked: "I’d be pissing all over myself if I tried the over the top method in jeans…#TrackiesAreEasier."
A third who tagged their mate added: "When you gotta go, you gotta go," while a fourth said: "Something I’d do if they kicked me out of the footy."
Rooftop pee breaks aside, England came out victorious during the deciding International Test match series against the Australia Wallabies.
