After flashing a laser at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the AFC Championship game, a Kansas City Chiefs fan will face criminal charges.
ESPN‘s Adam Schefter reports that the Chiefs fan will be banned from Arrowhead Stadium and will face “the harshest penalty possible” after flashing a green laser in Brady’s eyes during the game that went into overtime, with the Patriots winning.
While the KCPD initially planned to simply cite the fan for disorderly conduct, Chiefs officials pressured them into pressing criminal charges; this as a way to ensure that these antics do not reflect the franchise’s integrity.
Additionally, Chiefs officials stated, “There’s a lot of pride in Kansas City. We and our fans thought, ‘You don’t do that here.'”

Our photographer, Turner Twyman, caught someone pointing what appears to be a laser pointer in Tom Brady's face last night. Play between the "muff" that wasn't and Sorensen int. @NFL, @Patriots and @Chiefs all told me they weren't aware of the incident. pic.twitter.com/ejWBQ6i64C
