The two streakers who ran onto the field in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially received their punishment.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the two men pleaded no contest to trespassing charges. As a result, both will receive one year of probation, during which they’ll be required to complete 100 hours of community service, pay a $500 fine and write an apology letter to the NFL.

“I think you can tell by now, what might have been amusing back during the Super Bowl was not very amusing,” Hillsborough County Judge Jack Gutman told the two men, via the Times. “It inconvenienced a lot of people. You exposed people to injury. And hopefully, you learned your lesson about all this. It’s not funny at all.”

The two men planned this stunt, with one of the men jumping onto the field to distract Super Bowl security guards. While they were distracted a second man ran onto the field at Raymond James Stadium. You may remember Kevin Harlan’s call when he made it onto the field. The streaker wore yellow sneakers and a pink women’s swimsuit, emblazoned with the name of an adult website. Millions of viewers watched on television as he bobbed and weaved through security, before eventually being tackled by a Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy.

The man who made it on the field claimed to have profited via a prop bet made on Bovada. According to TMZ, Bovada investigated and refunded all bets due to the pre-planned stunt.
