ATLANTA -- The Chiefs don't mess around.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the fan who shined the green laser on Tom Brady a few times in the AFC championship game two weeks ago has been identified, banned from Arrowhead Stadium for life and soon will face charges from the Kansas City district attorney.

The day following the Patriots' win, a Kansas City TV station surfaced video of the laser and officials quickly were on the case.

At first, police wanted to cite the fan with disorderly conduct, but the Chiefs didn't feel those charges were strong enough and instead pushed for "the harshest penalty possible," according to Schefter. Also, members of the military have apparently reached out to Brady to tell him that the lasers shined near his face could cause irreversible eye damage.

Brady and the Patriots will take on the Rams Sunday night in Super Bowl LIII.
