A 64-year-old Missouri man who aimed a laser pointer at New England quarterback Tom Brady's face during the AFC Championship game pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace and must pay a $500 fine.

Dwyan Morgan of Lee's Summit faced up to a year in jail or a fine up to $1,000, Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said in April.

The incident happened in the fourth quarter of the Patriots' 37-31 overtime win against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Jan. 20.

A photographer for KMBC in Kansas City recorded evidence of a green laser shining in Brady's face. Prosecutors did not say how investigators were able to determine that Morgan was allegedly involved.

Morgan has been banned for life from the stadium. He admitted in May in an interview with "Inside Edition" that, from his seat in the end zone, he aimed the laser at Brady in an effort to distract him.
