The guy who hit Tom Brady with a green laser pointer back in the AFC Championship game just fessed up to the crime … but he’ll avoid jail time after pleading guilty Wednesday.
64-year-old Dwyan Morgan was cited for disturbing the peace after he was accused of shining a laser pointer in TB12’s eyes during the 4th quarter of the Jan. 20 Pats-Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium.
Morgan was facing time behind bars for the offense … the charge carried a maximum of ONE YEAR in jail plus a $1,000 fine if he was convicted.
But, TMZ Sports has learned the judge decided to take things easy on Morgan after he pleaded guilty to the charge in court … deciding only to hit him with a $500 fine.
We’re told Morgan paid that off … and the matter is now considered closed.
As we previously reported, sources close to Morgan told us he was a massive Chiefs fan who blamed an excessive amount of booze for the decision to break the laser out.
We’re told Morgan had no intention to ever to hurt anyone … and didn’t expect things to blow up the way they did.
As for Brady, the whole thing never seemed to bother him … after all, the guy went on to win his SIXTH Super Bowl just days later!!!
