Law student who ran naked through streets for free kebab called a goose by magistrate

With a free kebab on offer, Jack Mascitelli stripped naked and ran through the streets of Byron Bay, Australia, at 8.45 in the morning. The law student's week prank ended abruptly, when he inadvertently ran "screaming and yelling" towards a group of police officers, who fined him $500 for offensive behaviour.

Mr Mascitelli, 18, from Victoria, elected to appear in Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney on Monday to argue against the fine, and was admonished by Deputy Chief Magistrate Chris O'Brien. "Mr Mascitelli, what a goose. That's what you are," Mr O'Brien said to the teenager, who stood in court looking sheepish.

"This is 8.45 in the morning and you are running through the streets with no clothes on. I don't know why you would want a kebab at that time of day. This behaviour is embarrassing for your family, embarrassing for you, it's embarrassing for the community." Mr O'Brien said there could have been families in Byron Bay trying to enjoy their holidays on the morning of February 4.

"If people had been there with their children, or in my case my grandchildren, to see you exposing yourself ... they're wandering off to have a swim and there you are in all your glory." The court heard Mr Mascitelli, who is studying law and commerce at university, was very remorseful for taking up the dare. The magistrate said he hoped that the incident didn't prevent him from achieving his ambitions, and dismissed the case, without recording a conviction.

Aha, some smart people often go crazy. Of course, what this student did is beyond the normal scope, but still, if you study a lot and not read articles such as article with tips how to write good essay fast in which you can find information about services that help to do part of the work, then you can become a little weakened by the mind.

Very funny case. I understand this student. When i read a lot of such articles filled with infoy as article about marketing, then i also moved too far away from reality. But not so much to do what this student did.

Funny case, really. Sympathize with this student. He was clearly studying too much. When i read a lot of articles filled with info like article about top chemists and about service, which helps with chemistry homework, i also had a too busy brain. But i understand that you need to rest in order to be normal.
