A fan who shone a laser at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the AFC championship game will face charges and has been banned from Arrowhead Stadium for life, ESPN reported. They are not waiting for a verdict in court, however.

The NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs spent some time investigating a laser pointer incident that occurred during the AFC championship game.

Officials used videotape and eyewitnesses to locate the person who aimed the light at Brady, after KMBC's William Joy aired footage of a green dot zeroing in on Brady's face and shoulders. Because of the real dangers of shining lasers in people's eyes - which could cause permanent eye damage - the Kansas City district attorney is pursuing the "harshest penalty possible" in order to make an example of the fan and deter future fans from doing the same thing. ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Kansas City Police Dept. originally planned on arresting them for disorderly conduct, but the Chiefs argued for a more severe count.

De Sousa declared ineligible this season, and next
Kansas was in need of frontcourt help from De Sousa after losing starting center Udoka Azubuike for the season in early January. De Sousa began playing mid-way through past year , and became a valuable reserve for the Jayhawks down the stretch last season.

Brady didn't seem to be affected by the laser during the game, as he led multiple scoring drives in the fourth quarter and overtime to lift the Patriots to a third straight AFC title and a berth in Super Bowl LIII.

New England kicks off against Los Angeles at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday.
