Man given probation for Gatorade label case
DENVER (AP) — 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.
An FBI investigator says Kay claimed he considered what he did to be pop art in the style of Andy Warhol.
Woods returned to golf this year after admitting he was unfaithful to his wife, Elin, and undergoing therapy.
