SYDNEY Australia all-rounder Andrew Symonds
will face no action after he knocked over a streaker in his
side's nine-run one-day international loss to India in Brisbane
on Tuesday. Robert Murray David Ogilvie stormed the field and
ran towards Symonds, who shoulder-charged him to the ground
before the naked Ogilvie was led off by police and security
"He was dealing with self-preservation which we support 100
percent," Cricket Australia's Michael Brown told reporters in
"Andrew was in the zone and was severely threatened."
Ogilvie, 26, pleaded guilty in Brisbane Magistrates Court
to interfering with persons engaged in sport and wilful
exposure on Wednesday.
He was fined A$1,500 (700 pounds) but no conviction was
recorded. Police told Australian Associated Press they had not
received a complaint about Symonds' actions.
Local media had suggested Symonds could have been charged
under the International Cricket Council's Code of Conduct or
charged with assault by police, had Ogilvie made a complaint.
