(Newser) – A University of Colorado student who ran through a pedestrian mall naked except for a pumpkin on her head on Halloween agreed yesterday to a plea deal, the Boulder Daily Camera reports. The 20-year-old will do 6 months of probation and 8 hours of community service, and will not have to register as a sex offender. The agreement is expected to be offered to the 11 other “pumpkin streakers.”

“This was very uncharacteristic of me,” Natalie Ziemba told the judge.
