A student who stripped off in a Byron Bay kebab shop on February 4 and ran naked down Jonson Street will not receive a fine or conviction as police had hoped.

Just a month later, the street was packed with nude cyclists during the annual World Naked Bike Ride event.

Deputy chief magistrate Christopher O’Brien has reprimanded eighteen-year-old law student Jack Mascitelli, who dropped his daks on a dare.

During a hearing in Downing Centre Local Court, the magistrate described Mascitelli’s streaking as ‘an act of stupidity’ and warned future such acts could jeopardise his law career.

But he declined to record a conviction or impose a potential $500 for the ‘offensive behaviour’.
