Johnny Noble Arrested for Attempting to Streak at 2016 NFL Superbowl
West Palm Beach, FL — Johnny Noble was arrested this morning as part of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, prompted by the National Football League pursuant to increased security measures in American athletic events. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell issued a stern warning last week that anyone who tries to disrupt the Superbowl activities this year will face severe punishment.
Noble must not have seen these warnings, or just chose to completely ignore them. A post on the West Palm Beach, FL Craigslist events section entitled 'Superbowl Streaking!! Join Me!' surfaced last week, the description which called for members of the general public to join in on the "WORLDS BIGGEST streak ever." The post, quickly traced back to Noble's home computer, also details how Noble has already purchased a Superbowl admission ticket as well as airfare for the event. "Sure enough, a quick investigation produced those documents," says FBI Lead Investigator Don Brunnel.
Certain evidence was uncovered during a search of Noble's home, including a trench coat, airline confirmation receipt, and a single superbowl ticket purchased on StubHub. It is not clear at this point that the NFL is pressing charges, but the government's involvement suggests that some punishment is certain for Noble.
