Detroit Lions Fan Points Laser at Buffalo Bills Players (Video)


A Detroit Lines fan reportedly used a laser pointer on Buffalo Bills quarterback Kyle Orton and kick holder Colton Schmidt.

The incidents resulted in an incomplete pass and missed field goal.

The Detroit Lions announced today that the fan has been banned indefinitely from Ford Field and was charged with a misdemeanor of disorderly conduct, reports The Detroit News (video below).

Additionally, the season-ticket holder who gave the fan his ticket has lost his tickets for the rest of the season.

"It was shining on Colton on the hold," Bills kicker Dan Carpenter said after his team's 17-14 come-from-behind victory, noted "As far as that goes, I understand the NFL security is looking into it to see if they can figure anything out."

A Twitter user with the handle "Marko Beslach" bragged about using the laser during the game: "You see a green light on any of the bills players just laugh cause it's me."

However, neither law enforcement or the Lions would reveal the identity of the alleged suspect.

"We have a lot of ways to monitor the crowd and to look at activity both as it's happening and after the fact," Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand said in a statement, according to The Detroit News. "It was a confluence of all of those things that we do that enabled us to identify him so quickly."

"We do monitor social media and I certainly don't think he did himself any favors by talking about it, but that wasn't the sole issue for us," added Lewand.

Laser pointers are banned by all major sports teams.
