A 17-year-old fan accused of pointing a green laser in the eye of the visiting team’s quarterback at an NFL matchup over the weekend was cited Thursday on allegations of disorderly conduct and banned from Detroit Lions games.
The incident is similar to one that happened in June at the World Cup, when Russian coach Fabio Capello blamed his team’s 1-1 draw with Algeria on a laser pointer fired at his goalkeeper during the game.
In the latest incident, the Buffalo Bills were in Detroit, and the fan, identified by ESPN as Marko Beslach, tweeted about pointing a laser at quarterback Kyle Orton. “You see a green light on any of the bills players just laugh cause it’s me,” one of the tweets said. Another said, “Got Kyle Orton complained to the ref when I got him with the laser.” Beslach is also accused of pointing the laser at Buffalo placeholder Colton Schmidt.
