SCA decides future of NRL streaker Matt Cooper
The fate of Southern Cross Austereo national account manager Matthew Cooper has been decided.
Cooper was charged by police after he streaked onto the field at Sunday’s NRL game between the Paramatta Eels & Wests Tigers (July 14).
The radio network confirmed that it has completed a thorough investigation in the days since.
“We have conducted and completed a thorough investigation of this incident and taken appropriate action. We do not disclose confidential information relating to employment matters,” said a spokesperson for SCA.
In front of more than 24,000 fans, the 2DayFM and Triple M account manager ran onto the pitch after hiding behind a Channel 9 camera.
Cooper was not, as previously reported by News Corp, a guest of the NRL, but was attending the game with a complimentary ticket from SCA.
Police attended the scene and issued Cooper with a court attendance notice for “wilful and obscene exposure”, as well as another charge under the pitch invasions act.
News Corp also reports that Cooper will front court next month, and could be subject to jail time as well as a venue ban and hefty fine.
