Streaker fined $500 for Test dash

2:58 pm on 3 July 2014

A man who streaked at a packed rugby Test between the All Blacks and England in Dunedin last month has been fined $500.

Builder Adam Holtslag appeared in the Christchurch District Court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to a charge of offensive behaviour.

Holtslag was stopped on the field when he was tackled by a security guard - a tackle criticised by some as being of unreasonable force.

The management of Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium have already banned Holtslag from the stadium for two years.
