NEW YORK (AP) - A streaker who disrupted a New York Mets game by
jumping onto Citi Field naked except for a stuffed monkey tied
around his waist has been banned from the ballpark for a year.

Prosecutors say Craig Coakley of Queens pleaded guilty Thursday to interfering with a sporting event. He must pay a $1,000 fine and $2,000 in civil penalties to the New York Mets. He also has to complete 20 days of community service by Dec. 15.

The 38-year-old plumber told police after streaking on May 12 that it was a bet. His boss told him he'd pay a week's salary if he did it.

Coakley faced up to a year in prison. His lawyer says he's sorry.
