I wrote about this case before. But it gets even more ridiculous.
While Islamic terrorists roam the country along with criminal illegal aliens and other hardened criminal perpetrators, our Justice Department is going after the “real” criminal problem: a dude who altered the labels on a few Gatorade bottle to show pics of Tiger Woods, with a notation about him cheating on his wife.
Yup, that’s the crime of the century. The guy should have been fined by the local prosecutor. But, instead, it became a federal case . . . literally. Even FDA agents were involved, because there are apparently no more serious problems with our food or drugs, right? Yes, we have an interest in promoting food safety. But come on. And there’s no evidence any of the contents were tampered with. It was just a smart-alecky joke.
A Colorado man who replaced labels on dozens of Gatorade bottles with an image of Tiger Woods and his wife and the word “unfaithful” has been sentenced to two years of probation and fined $1,000.
Jason Kay was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in February to a federal misdemeanor charge of mislabeling a food product.
Prosecutors say the bottles were found in Safeway and King Soopers stores around Colorado in January, with several orange Gatorade bottles incorrectly labeled as mango.
Read the federal Criminal Information document. Ridiculous.
