Chiefs found the fan who pointed laser in Tom Brady's face

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.

Patriots, Rams Set To Lock Horns In 2nd Super Bowl Showdown
New England's largest winning margin in the big game came in Super Bowl LI, when they beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime. At +2.5, the Rams have the third-shortest odds of any underdog going into the Super Bowl since the turn of the Millennium.

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.
