Football streaker avoids jail time in plea deal

Orchard Park Police

Oh yes, they call him the streak. On Thursday, he entered a guilty plea in Orchard Park Town Court.

Social media has been loving 29-year-old Tristan Lambright of Cheektowaga, who streaked across New Era Field during the Buffalo Bills vs. New Orleans Saints game November 12, before being tackled by security officers. After his arrest, fans rallied around him, offering praise for his physique and money for his defense.

Law enforcement, on the other hand, has not been as favorable. However, Lambright did avoid jail time Thursday, when he appeared before Orchard Park Justice Edward Pace.

In a plea deal with the Erie County District Attorney's office, Lambright pleaded guilty to a violation: Exposure of a Person. He was fined $400 and ordered to complete 25 hours of community service. He has also been banned from attending events at New Era for one year.

Lambright was originally charged with criminal trespassing, public lewdness and exposure of a person.
