    Kansas City Chiefs Bans Fan Who Allegedly Pointed Laser at Tom Brady

    What appears to be a green light from a laser pointed from the stands can be seen on the right side of the face of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during a play in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship game against Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The NFL has said they are investigating the incidents.

    The Kansas City Chiefs have instituted a lifetime ban against a fan accused of flashing a laser at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during last month's AFC championship game.

    The Kansas City Star reports the Chiefs say the team is also working with authorities to charge the fan "as aggressively as possible," but the decision is ultimately up to prosecutors in Jackson County.

    Prosecutor's office spokesman Michael Mansur says charges hadn't been filed as of Sunday.

    Laser pointers are banned at most sporting events because of the potential for distraction and safety reasons. The light can damage the retina in the eye after even a short period of time.
