“Mr. Mascitelli, what a goose. That’s what you are,” lectured Deputy Chief Magistrate Chris O’Brien in Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney, NSW, Australia. “This is 8:45 in the morning and you are running through the streets with no clothes on,” O’Brien continued. Noting that Jack Mascitelli, 18, had taken a dare from fellow students with the reward being a kebab, O’Brien wondered, “I don’t know why you would want a kebab at that time of day.” Police in Byron Bay witnessed the streak, and found Mascitelli in a Jonson Street kebab shop. “This behavior is embarrassing for your family, embarrassing for you, it’s embarrassing for the community,” O’Brien continued — but let Mascitelli go without recording a conviction so it won’t impact his career: he’s studying to be a lawyer.
