I remember reading about an incident in the 80s (in a Brit photography mag) which kind of bent the rules of photojournalism:
- there was a streaker at a football match the photog was covering
- photog didn't like the shots he got
- photog approached the streaker in courthouse grounds (after he was charged I guess), and asked him for a staged repeat performance
- Voila! a perfect shot of the streaker, shot at an angle from which you couldn't see the empty stands

Streaker? Or do you mean striker?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaking
"Streaking is the act of running nude through a public place."

Why would a striker be charged in court? ;)
Never heard of strikers being charged in UK? I guess you are either not a soccer fan or haven't been keeping up the soccer news for long, long time. Jokes asides, I get your point. Streaker.
