This past January, during the AFC title game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs, it appeared that a fan in the stands was shining a laser pointer on quarterback Tom Brady's face while he was on the field. Tuesday, police announced they'd identified and charged a man in connection with the incident.

Police in Kansas City have issued a citation to Dwyan Morgan, a 64-year-old man from Lee's Summit. He's being cited for disturbing the peace.

If found guilty, he faces either a fine of up to $1,000 or a year in jail. Obviously, one of those is far worse than the other.

While it's unlikely that Morgan goes to jail, it is good that police we able to hold someone accountable for the incident.

The laser pointer did not appear to slow Brady down. The Patriots beat the Chiefs in overtime, 37-31 to reach the Super Bowl. They then beat the Los Angeles Rams to win the championship.

Brady, in the game against the Chiefs, finished 30-of-46 for 348 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
