Browns streaker banned, has to pick up garbage

After streaking at a preseason game against the Lions, Anthony Saveriano is now banned from attending future Browns games.

He was punished also, sentenced to 40 hours of picking up tailgating garbage.

(Try the veal. We’ll be here all week.)

According to Cory Shaffer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the streaker was not eligible for a pre-trial diversion because of previous offenses, so he was sentenced to community service, a year’s probation and had to pay a $572 fine. He also has to write a letter of apology to the team and fans, which will be published in the Plain Dealer, and clean up after four of the next seven Browns home games.

“We thought it very appropriate that he go out there and clean up after all those partiers and revelers,” Cleveland Municipal Judge Lauren C. Moore said.

And the Browns think it’s appropriate to not let him in the door ever again.

In a letter addressed to Saveriano from Browns vice president of security Pete Bickmore, the streaker was told he was unwelcome.

“. . .the decision has been made to revoke your stadium privileges,” the letter said. “You are considered a ‘DO NOT ADMIT’ at FirstEnergy Stadium. If you attempt to attend a game we will pursue legal trespassing charges against you.”

Of course, they might not recognize him, if he disguises himself by wearing pants.
