The Full Story: It happens at ballgames, sure, but streakers don't usually get to ply their trade in the political arena. Juan Rodriguez, 24, from Staten Island, N.Y., broke that tradition in October when -- with the name of a website written on his bare chest (which was as bare as the rest of him) -- he tried to get the attention of President Obama. It's unclear whether the president even noticed any commotion, but Rodriguez did get to meet some new people, including some members of the Philadelphia Police Department and Secret Service. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the streaking incident was motivated by British Internet mogul Alki David, who wanted publicity for one of his websites. David offered $1 million to anyone who would bare all for the cause, write the name of the website on his chest, shout the website's name six times and get the president's attention. Rodriguez (who fulfilled three of the four items on the checklist but did not attract the attention of Obama) was charged with indecent exposure, public lewdness and disorderly conduct. And he still didn't know if he'd get the million-dollar prize.
What's Happened Since? ABC News reported that Rodriguez gave an explanation for his actions, noting, "He told reporters outside the jail after posting bond that he took the dare to provide for his three children and pay his sister's surgery costs." Days after the streaking incident, Staten Island Live reported that Rodriguez did not get the $1 million but would get "a hefty consolation prize," including rent money for the next year. That made his landlord happy, because Rodriguez reportedly was behind on the rent. David also agreed to pay Rodriguez's sister's medical bills, and he'd even have some cash left over. According to the Staten Island Advance and WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, Rodriquez was a no-show for his court date in November. The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office told AOL News Rodriguez's trial will take place on Jan. 28. Whether it was his sudden brush with fame or the encounter with the Secret Service, Rodriguez seems to have avoided any further exposure.
In His Own Words: The formerly homeless Rodriguez told reporters outside the Philadelphia courthouse, after he was released in October, that "My family needs the money, my sister needs an operation and it's not cheap." Of Obama, Rodriguez told the Inquirer, "I think he's a great guy. I think he's doing a great job for this country."
