Judge Bans Naked Runner from Future Flying Pig Marathons

Judge Bans Naked Runner from Future Flying Pig Marathons

Back in May, we told you about Brett Henderson who streaked naked at the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati.  He was arrested for his lewd act that day.

Today he had his day in court:

The judge placed Henderson on a year of probation, ordered him to spend 80 hours doing community service, to never run in the Flying Pig marathon again and to pay the marathon the $110 entry fee he never paid.

YouTube Video of Henderson Streaking at the Pig:

I can’t argue with the sentencing, but would the judge have been as severe with his ruling if the runner had been a woman?

Flying Pig Marathon 2011 (Ribbon)

2011 Flying Pig Marathon Medal

This creative and unique finisher’s medal is from the 2011 Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati, Ohio that took place on May 1, 2011.

It was the first two-sided medal that I have received for finishing a race.  The front had a ‘flying pig’ with the phrase “I HIGHTAILED IT,” and the back of the medal had the backside of a ‘flying pig’ with the phrase “I MADE A RUN FOR IT” with the skyline of Cincy in the background.

The decorative ribbon (see photo below) completed this first class medal. The ribbon was thick, with flying piggies, and the name of the race on it.

Brett S. Henderson Flying Pig Marathon Streaker Mug Shot

Naked Man Tasered Running Cincinnati’s Flying Pig Marathon

Brett S. Henderson, from St. Paris, Ohio, was tasered by Cincinnati police after running part of the Flying Pig Marathon naked (plus running shoes).

Police say Henderson was told to exit the race and get in a police car but he refused, running around an officer and continuing to run in the race. Eventually, Henderson was instructed to get in a car or he would be Tased. Henderson kept on running and an officer Tased him.

Henderson was charged with public indecency and obstructing official business.

Witnesses claim that Henderson was not just naked, but naked fast, maintaining a 7:30 pace until cops tasered him.

The real question is, at a 7:30 pace, how in the world did a cop catch him?

Henderson’s mother claims her son’s shorts were just too big and kept falling down.  One report stated that he had borrowed them from his father.

Like experienced runners will tell you, “Run the race in what you train with!”

I ran the Flying Pig this past weekend, and I’m glad I didn’t run into Henderson’s piggie tail.

Perhaps it’s best for this streaker that mug shots are taken from the neck up.
