Report: Lions catch laser-pointing fan, ban him from games
The Detroit Lions have caught the fan who shined a laser pointer at the Buffalo Bills in last Sunday's game between the two teams and have banned him from attending future games, reports FOX Sports 1's Mike Garafolo.
After the Bills' 17-14 win, quarterback Kyle Orton and holder Colton Schmidt said they had a laser pointer directed at them during the game. Schmidt said it occurred while he was holding for a 50-yard field goal attempt by Dan Carpenter in the third quarter that went off the left upright.
The NFL confirmed it was investigating the incident on Tuesday and that it would work with Detroit police to help identify the offender.
The identify of the fan is unknown, but a male using the account name @MarkoBeslach tweeted after Sunday's game that he had shone a laser pointer. The account has since been deactivated.
