Lee's Summit, Mo. man accused of shining laser at Tom Brady cited


KANSAS CITY, Mo. A Lee's Summit, Mo. man faces a single count of disturbing the peace in connection with a January incident at Arrowhead Stadium in which he's accused of shining a laser pointer at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the AFC Championship game.

Kansas City CBS station KCTV-5 reports 64-year-old Dwyan Morgan could face up to a year in jail or pay a $1,000 fine. He's scheduled to appear in court on July 17.

Local TV stations posted footage from the game that showed a green light flashing on Brady late in the Patriots’ 37-31 overtime victory. At least two instances occurred on their go-ahead drive in the fourth quarter, including a crucial 25-yard pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Laser pointers are banned at most sporting events because of safety reasons, as well as the potential distraction.
