NEW YORK - A warrant has been issued against an offender, who went naked in front of US President Barack Obama during an event in Philadelphia.
WPVI-TV reported that the streaker Juan Rodriguez, of Staten Island, didn’t turn up for his court hearing for his offence in last month’s rally.
He was taken away from rally wearing only handcuffs and has been charged with indecent exposure and lewd behaviour, reports the New York Post.
Los Angeles billionaire Alki David put Rodriguez up to the stunt, promising 1 million dollars if he completed the nude dash while promoting his website.
Since Obama didn’t give a glimpse to the streaker, David withheld the full reward, but agreed to give Rodriguez an undisclosed amount of cash and pay his rent for the next year and his sister’s hospital bills. (ANI)
