DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions have thrown the flag at a fan and barred him from all Ford Field events for using a laser pointer at a game against the Bills.
Buffalo quarterback Kyle Orton and holder Colton Schmidt said they had a laser directed at them during a 17-14 win over the Lions on Sunday.
The Lions said the man has been charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. The man was using a ticket held by a season-ticket holder. The team is revoking that person’s tickets for the rest of the season.
In a statement Thursday, Lions President Tom Lewand says the laser pointer could have affected the “integrity of the game” and hurt players.
