Man pleads guilty for streaking during Phoenix Open event in Scottsdale
PHOENIX — A 24-year-old man has been sentenced to five days in jail for streaking across the green during the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Scottsdale.
According to Sgt. Ben Hoster, a spokesman with the Scottsdale Police Department, 24-year-old Adam Stalmach was the man behind the stunt.
Stalmach was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct on Wednesday. He pleaded guilty to one count of indecent exposure on Thursday. He will also be ordered to pay $1,500 in fines.
Stalmach caught the attention of thousands of golf fans at TPC Scottsdale who thought they were going to see their favorite celebrities take a swing on the green — and instead saw a whole lot more.
During Wednesday’s Pro-Am event, Stalmach stripped down and proceeded to bare it all to the shock — and applause — of the spectators on hole No. 17.
But he did more than just run: Stalmach also showed off some dance moves, played in the sand and even pretended to hit at the green for several minutes.
Eventually, course security caught up to Stalmach before later turning him over to Scottsdale police.
According to Hoster, he also showed “signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication.”
