A man has been charged over his raucous behavior on the roof of the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Social media footage shows bodybuilder Daniel King climbing onto the top of the Bill O'Reilly Stand's big screen during Saturday night's rugby Test Match between Australia and England.

Not only did King, 31, climb on the roof, but - in clips that have been shared online - he appears to urinate in the direction of the screen from his high-up perch.

It wasn't long before police rescue crews arrived on the scene to remove the New Zealand native from the roof. According to a report by 9News, the 31-year-old's unruly behavior will likely land him a hefty fine and a two-year ban from the Sydney Cricket Ground.

An NSW Police spokesperson explained in a statement that after King was removed from the stadium he was arrested and taken to Surry Hills police station, where law enforcement officers charged him with two offenses.

"About 9.20 PM, Saturday 16 July, a man was at a sporting stadium at Moore Park when he allegedly climbed onto the top of a scoreboard within the stadium, and onto the roof of a spectator's stand," they reported.

"Officers attached to Surry Hills police area command and the police rescue attended and safely removed the man a short time later, before he was arrested," the statement continued.

The spokesperson went on to confirm King, who works out of Bondi as a personal trainer, was charged with: "behaving in [an] offensive manner in/near public place and climbing on buildings on scheduled lands without approval."

After being granted conditional bail, he was instructed to appear in court early next week on July 25.

King's rowdy behavior came as the atmosphere at the Sydney Cricket Ground reached a fever pitch. Per 9News, England coach Eddie Jones was seen shouting at spectators as they heckled him. Another fan attempted to spray the coach with a beer can as he walked past.

In a statement, Rugby Australia said that they were "disappointed" with the unruly behavior.

"The deplorable actions of the alleged intruder that made his way to the roof of the grandstand were disgraceful and dangerous," they added.
