Nathan Smith, a 26-year-old Alberta, Canada, native, was charged with public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, open lewdness and indecent exposure for his role in a streaking incident early Sunday.
According to police, Mr. Smith said he was acting on a bet when he ran naked into the street on the 100 block of Adams Avenue in Scranton at 2:29 a.m. Sunday.
Police said Mr. Smith apologized and put his clothes on before being handcuffed and taken into custody.
“I would like to apologize to the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania, to my teammates and to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Pittsburgh Penguins organizations,” Mr. Smith said in a prepared statement. “I made an embarrassing and regrettable decision this weekend and understand I will face disciplinary action. My conduct was unacceptable and totally out of character — it will not happen again. I promise (to) do my best to win back your trust and support.”
