The streaker who dressed up as an official and set off chaos at Thursday’s night UCLA-Arizona game hopefully enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame, because he now faces one-and-a-half years in jail.
According to the Tucson Citizen, Jace Lankow – an undergraduate at Arizona who was born in October 0f 1988 – has been charged with criminal impersonation, a class 6 felony. That means he faces up to 18 months in the Big House.
While you had to expect the authorities in Tucson to throw the book at Lankow to try and discourage this kind of behavior from happening again, charging someone with criminal impersonation seems like it should be reserved for someone dressing up as a police officer, not a college football referee.
You can expect the “Free Jace” movement to start soon.
