MISSOULA - The University of Montana sophomore who went streaking during the Griz and Cal Poly game on Saturday told us he was really drunk when he decided to do it.
Daniel Thew, 19, is facing an MIP and a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge for the incident.
After his court appearance Monday morning, Thew told us he was really drunk and someone told him he should go streaking, so he did. He said he remembers people chanting "Dan the Man" and then realized he was naked on the football field.
In court Friday morning, the judge read Thew his rights, but Thew wanted to talk to an attorney before entering a plea.
Thew tells us he should know later this week if he will be expelled from UM.
We're waiting to hear back from the University of Montana's Dean of Students about their reaction to this incident.
