'Plank' Prank Posted Online Gets Man, 19, Convicted of Disorderly Conduct

Alexander Hart apparently thought it would be amusing to be photographed, lying straight as a board, in various locations such as the top of an automatic teller machine and a Walmart merchandise display.

But a judge in Wisconsin was not amused, convicting the 19-year-old of disorderly conduct for “planking” and fining him $303, reports the Smoking Gun.

Evidence against Hart in the Manitowoc municipal court case included photos he posted on Facebook and a YouTube video. Some images showed him lying across a patrol car and a police memorial monument.
