Arizona-UCLA Streaker Facing Felony Charges, Jail Time Unlikely

By now just about everyone knows of Jace Lankow and the streaking he did across Arizona Stadium on Thursday night. While no one was hurt during the incident -- well, no one besides Lankow, who was tackled by multiple police officers -- the 22-year old could be facing a class 6 felony charge.

No, we aren't kidding. AZ Central confirms the news:

He was led off the field in handcuffs and charged with a class 6 felony, which means he's facing a maximum of a year and a half in jail if he has no previous felony convictions.

This seems incredibly unfair and the charges could (and probably will) be reduced, according to Business Insider.

There is a possibility Lankow's charges will be reduced to a Class 1 misdemeanor based on his criminal history and the nature of the offense.

My guess is Lankow will pay a hefty fine, get a hard slap on the wrist and will not be welcome back at Arizona Stadium. It would be absolutely absurd if he has to serve any time in prison and the community would be furious.

Hey, he's a college kid who had a crazy idea that turned badly for him. It happens.
