Police Crack Down On Streaking At County Fair

JACKSON, Wyo. -- Keeps your pants on!

That's the warning from police in Jackson, Wyo.

Authorities promise to crack down on the streaking that's become a tradition on the last day of the Teton County Fair. Posters at the fair office warn that streaking won't be tolerated this year.

The full-mooners run across the track at the demolition derby which closes the fair. There have been up to 10 streakers in the past.

One prosecutor said "drunk, crazy and naked streaking" isn't something that can be considered a normal, fun thing.

The streakers face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
