      A man who decided to doff his duds during a Seattle baseball game could avoid permanent charges—as long as he plays it safe.

      Vancouver-based 28-year-old David McClearn ran naked across Safeco Field in Seattle during the ninth inning of a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Seattle Mariners on August 4.

      He was tackled to the ground by officials and subsequently arrested.

      He was released on $2,000 bail on August 5. The Belfast Telegraph  reported that he is an Irish national, and that he was also facing possible deportation to Ireland.

      McClearn appeared in Seattle court on August 8, where he faced a charge of criminal trespassing that has a maximum of 364 days in jail or a $5,000 fine, according to CBC News.

      However, the court ruled that the charge against McClearn will be waived and removed from his record, on the condition that he doesn't break any laws or enter the field over the next six months, according to StarMetro Vancouver.

      He is also required to notify the court of any address changes and must appear at all scheduled hearings.

      The stunt was reportedly sparked by an $80 bet.
