SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The NFL is looking into reports that a laser pointer was aimed at New England quarterback Tom Brady during Sunday’s AFC championship game.
Our photographer, Turner Twyman, caught someone pointing what appears to be a laser pointer in Tom Brady’s face last night. Play between the “muff” that wasn’t and Sorensen int. @NFL, @Patriots and @Chiefs all told me they weren’t aware of the incident. pic.twitter.com/ejWBQ6i64C

NFL vice president of communications, Brian McCarthy confirmed to the Boston Globe that the league is investigating Sunday’s incidents.
A few years ago, a Lions fan was fined more than $200 dollars and sentenced to community service for shining a laser at Buffalo Bills quarterback Kyle Orton during a game.
The Washington Post reports the Lions fan also was banned from Ford Field and the season-ticket holder who took him to the game had his tickets revoked.
