The person accused of using a laser pointer during Sunday’s game between the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills has been identified and banned indefinitely from attending all future events at Ford Field, the Lions announced Thursday.
The individual, who admitted using the laser pointer, also has been charged with a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct by the Detroit City Prosecutor’s Office.
The Lions also announced that the season-ticket holder whose ticket was used by the individual will have his season tickets revoked for the rest of the 2014 season.
“Our guest behavior expectations for all Ford Field events are very high,” Lions team President Tom Lewand stated. “Additionally, this occurrence was unique in that it could have affected the integrity of the game and, more importantly, could have jeopardized player safety.
“Our priority is to provide an enjoyable and safe environment for all our patrons at Ford Field. The overwhelming majority of our guests are exceptional and we applaud their behavior and support.”
