Detroit city attorney Melvin Hollowell identified the alleged offender as a 17-year-old from West Bloomfield, Michigan. He says the teen will be ticketed for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.
The teen was using a ticket held by a season-ticket holder. The Lions are 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.
