Citi Field streaker gets community service
The Citi Field streaker won’t be running around again with a strategically placed stuffed monkey anytime soon.
A Queens judge Thursday banned Craig Coakley, 29, from the Mets stadium for a year and ordered him to pay $3,000 and do 20 days of community service.
In May, Coakley ran out on the field in the buff (other than the monkey) during a Braves-Mets game. The Whitestone resident told police that his boss promised to pay him a week’s salary for the antics.
“(I) didn’t think I was gonna get in so much trouble. It was a bet,” he said at the time.
In another bizarre fan incident, a 23-year-old Queens man was arrested earlyWednesday after he kissed Rafael Nadal courtside at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Noam U. Aorta faces one-year jail time and a $5,000 fine for rushing Nadal as he changed his shirt.
