Kandy, Sri Lanka: July 28th 2016 A Brisbane man who rushed a cricket field before stripping off his clothes and sliding on a rain-drenched tarp cover will spend a week in jail for ‘indecent exposure.’
Alex James was watching the first cricket Test between Sri Lanka and Australia in Kandy, in central Sri Lanka, on Tuesday when he appeared to get bored during a rain delay and was seen running on the blue rain cover shielding the cricket-wicket area, according to The Australian.
Mr James was captured on video swinging his shirt above his head as he ran in the rain.

He was sentenced on Wednesday and was sentenced to seven days in jail for ‘indecent exposure’, despite a local Buddhist Monk’s arguments for charges to be pressed
He then throws his shirt and takes and pulls down his shorts but falls as he tries to kick them into the air.
Mr James bounces back to his feet and begins to run again before throwing himself onto the cover again and sliding on his stomach as his friends cheered him on.
He then grabs his clothes and puts his shorts on as police approach him.
He was let go by police but it was later reported that he had been arrested.
Mr James appeared in the Kandy Magistrates Court on Wednesday and was sentenced to seven days in jail and ordered to pay a $30 fine for being intoxicated, despite a local Buddhist Monk’s arguments for charges to be pressed.
