Irish man who streaked at a baseball game for $80 bet faces deportation
Was it worth it?
An Irish man went streaking in the outfield during the ninth inning of a game between the Seattle Mariners and the Toronto Blue Jays and could now face deportation as a result.
The streaker was identified as an Irish citizen living in Vancouver, Canada, and could face deportation after his arrest. The man reportedly ran onto the field for an $80 bet with some of his friends.

Ran into friends of the streaker outside of Safeco. They showed us his clothes. He decided to streak on the spot. He and friends visiting from Ireland - and friends said they are starting #GoFundMe page to help bail him out! #Mariners #Streaker #BlueJays pic.twitter.com/Vf8bSR6NYm

While initially it was all fun, the charges levelled against him are serious and he may be deported from Canada as a result according to SportsNet's Hazel Mae.
Update: according to my source with the King County Sheriff’s office, last night’s streaker is still incarcerated. Since he is an Irish national, he could now be deported. Charges are very serious. All this because I’m told his buddies bet him $80..
