They call him the streak

I'm shocked—absolutely shocked—that alcohol was involved in an incident like this:
The captain of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins was charged with indecent exposure after a police officer saw him running naked on a downtown street early Sunday, and a teammate was arrested for public drunkenness.

Nathan Smith told the officer he acted on a bet.

Officials said Smith, a center for the AHL team, was charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure, open lewdness and disorderly conduct, as well as public drunkenness. He was released on $10,000 bail.

Penguins forward Ryan Stone was charged with public drunkenness.

The American Hockey League team suspended Smith for its second-round home playoff game Thursday. It was not immediately clear how Stone would be disciplined but the team said he would not be suspended.
Smith made your standard, boilerplate apology, with the usual "I made an embarrassing and regrettable decision," and "it will not happen again," which rings a little hollow, considering the fact that he was also arrested for public drunkenness six months ago. Though, to be fair, the article doesn't mention him being naked that time. And, hey, who among us can say they've never been nude and drunk in public even just one time?

I mean, other than me. My mom raised me better than that.

Update: Great minds Morons think alike.
