Britons arrested for streaking in Malia, Crete August 1, 2006

Three British men were sentenced to a month in prison and fined $1,000 each on Tuesday for stripping outdoors at a rowdy holiday resort on the island of Crete, court authorities said.

A court found the three men guilty of disturbing the peace and making a display of public nudity. The three men can pay the fine in lieu of jail time, under a Greek law concerning petty offenses.

The incident occurred early Monday at the seaside resort of Malia, near the island’s capital, Iraklio, where several disturbances involving British tourists have been reported this summer.

Last month, 10 British men were arrested following a brawl involving some 50 people that occurred in Malia and continued at the local health clinic where some of the men were being treated for injuries.

The 10 suspects were due to appear in court Tuesday on assault charges, but the trial was postponed, court officials said, without offering further details.
