Man Arrested For Shining Laser Pointer At Tom Brady In AFC Championship: ‘I’m Not Gonna Apologize’
Back in January, during the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs, it appeared to viewers watching on TV that someone was shining a green laser pointer at Tom Brady’s face during key moments of the game. (Artist depiction above.)
Following the game, the NFL, the Chiefs, and the Kansas City Police Department began an investigation into the matter.
Three months later, the alleged perpetrator was identified: a 64-year-old man named Dwyan Morgan.
The Kansas City Star reported that Morgan was officially cited for disturbing the peace, banned from all future games at Arrowhead Stadium, and faced up to a year in jail or a fine of up to $1,000.
Morgan, who said he wasn’t trying to hurt Brady’s eyes, just distract him, recently appeared on Inside Edition, and he’s not sorry.
In fact, he was surprised that he was arrested.
“I didn’t think it would go this far,” he said. “I shouldn’t have done it.”
He faces up to a year in jail or up to a $1,000 fine if found guilty.
One person he isn’t saying sorry to? The man himself.
“I’m not gonna apologize to Brady or the Patriots,” Morgan said.
During his appearance on Inside Edition, Morgan displayed the actual laser pointer he shined in Brady’s face multiple times during the AFC Championship game, and showed reporter Steven Fabian how he did it.
He also admitted that he shined the laser in Brady’s face “after a few beers too many.” Shocker.
Morgan’s court appearance is scheduled for July 17.
