Lions fan accused of using laser against Bills due in court in November

DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit Lions fan who was banned from Ford Field after being accused of directing a laser pointer at Buffalo Bills players during a game is due back in court in November for a review of the case.

The Detroit Free Press reports Marko Beslach of Oakland County’s West Bloomfield Township last year pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct misdemeanor and was given a one-year suspended sentence, 80 hours of community service and a $235 fine.

The newspaper says he paid the fine earlier this year. The review is Nov. 23.

Quarterback Kyle Orton and holder Colton Schmidt said they had a laser directed at them during Buffalo’s 17-14 win over the Lions in October.

Fans caught using lasers also can be ejected and are subject to being arrested. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
