Streaker says he ‘felt great’ running across the GabbaMarch 5th, 2008 - 1:14 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Mar.5 (ANI): A streaker who was fined 1500 Australian dollars for running on to the Gabba Cricket Oval during the one-day tri-series final between Australia and India on Tuesday, said it felt good to being flattened by Andrew Symonds
Robert Murray David Ogilvie, 26, today pleaded guilty in a Brisbane Magistrates Court to interfering with persons engaged in sport and wilful exposure.
The Daily Telegraph quoted Ogilvie as telling reporters outside the court that it “felt great” to be knocked down by the all-rounder.
“It was great actually… it was just like playing football,” he said.
Ogilvie was fined, but no conviction was recorded.
Asked whether he had any intention of bringing assault charges against Symonds, Ogilvie said: “No, wake up to yourself”.
Ogilvie apologised to the cricketers involved in yesterday’s match, but said he did not regret his naked run.
“You only live once, don’t you?” he said.
However, he insisted his streaking days were over.
“No, done it once, that’s enough isn’t it?”
The court heard Ogilvie was drinking with his brother and friends before running naked across the field last night.
He was knocked to the ground when shoulder-charged by Symonds, who was batting when Ogilvie ran close to the all-rounder. (ANI)
