Two local teens were able to streak across the field at last week’s homecoming game, but weren’t fast enough to evade police.
Richard Dilibero, 18, of 117 Mt. View Ave. in North Kingstown and another 17-year-old man allegedly ran naked across the field at North Kingstown High School before jumping into a car and hitting the school’s athletics director. (Due to the fact that the second man is a minor, police did not release his identity.)
According to reports, NKHS Athletics Director Howard Hague followed the teens after seeing them streak across the field. The two jumped into a car and Hague reportedly stood in front of it in an effort to stop their escape. The 17-year-old teen, the driver, tried to swerve around Hague but ended up striking him in the rib area.
Police pulled the undressed duo over on Boston Neck Road and noticed that the driver was still without drawers. According to reports, Dilibero immediately told the officer he was sorry for streaking.
Dilibero was charged with disturbance of public assemblies. The minor was charged with duty to stop in an accident (resulting in a personal injury), disturbance of public assemblies, reckless driving and duty to render aid/report an accident to police.
