Mets fan arrested and charged with breaking the Calvin Klein Law

Frank Martinez, a 40-year old Mets fan, was arrested Friday night and charged with interfering with a professional sporting event and second-degree reckless endangerment, after he tried to shine a high-powered flashlight in the eyes of Atlanta pitcher Tim Hudson and shortstop Edgar Renteria, according to a Queens D.A., as reported in the Associated Press.

Calvin Klein Law?

A law making it expressly illegal to interfere with a professional sporting event was passed by the city in 2003 following a disruptive incident involving fashion designer Calvin Klein.

Klein stepped onto the basketball court at Madison Square Garden in March 2003 to speak with player Latrell Sprewell while a Knicks game was in progress.

Martinez could face a year in jail and a $5,000 fine. I'm assuming that Martinez would face a punishment slightly less severe if convicted. Maybe he'll only be allowed to go to day games. Or only be able to watch games involving the Washington Nationals.

Wouldn't it be funny if Martinez was wearing Calivin Klein underwear when he got busted.

It's, like, right out of a Tom Clancy novel.

(The high-intensity flashlight shenanigans, not the Cuba series.)

"Calvin Klein Law"

I thought you meant the guy was using child porn as a marketing tool.
