Las Vegas Streaker Arrested Atop Poker Table

Spread the Word:

A man was arrested on Sunday night at Harrah’s Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip for taking off all of his clothes and climbing naked on top of a poker table.

The man is Brian Danilczyk of West Babylon, New York, and his run-in with the law actually took place over three separate casinos on the Strip, beginning with an unprovoked attack on a one-legged man near the Bird bar inside the Flamingo Hotel & Casino.

He then allegedly went from the Flamingo to the LINQ Hotel and Casino next door, where surveillance video showed him taking off his clothes as he ran through the casino floor. His next and final stop was then at Harrah’s, where, according to the police report, “he climbed atop a poker table and flaunted his genitals to all who passed by.”

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas, and in the case of Danilczyk, a video of the incident has been released by TMZ showing his final moments on top of the table, “gyrating,” as it was described to police.

The man was eventually subdued by security officers at Harrah’s, wrestling him off the table and scattering cards and chips in the process. He was then covered in a blanket and held by Harrah’s security staff until police arrived from the Flamingo,  where they had responded to the original incident.

The police report, surprising no one, said that the suspect was in an “altered mental state” at the time of the incident. As his time passed in custody with the officers, he became more lucid and cooperative. He also claimed to not remember any of his three casino stops, the attack on the one-legged man, or how he came to be fully naked.

Strip Poker

Strip poker is one version of the game that isn’t offered at any of the casinos operating in Las Vegas, although this isn’t the first time an impromptu game has broken out. In 2017, a man walked into the poker room at the Bellagio fully naked, but carrying his clothes in a pile. 

Reports differed at the time, with some saying that he was trying to buy into a game, while others said that he had previously been playing in the room, left and took his clothes off, and then returned to retrieve his phone. There was also speculation that his actions were part of bet he’d lost.

Security officers eventually were able to corner the man and get him to put his clothes on.

In the case of Danilczyk, he was taken to the Clark County Detention Center late Sunday night and charged with disorderly conduct, battery, and five counts of indecent exposure. According to the Clark County Detention Center, he was released from custody on Monday, and he is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, August 17.

The man who was attacked at the Flamingo by Danilczyk has declined to press charges.
