DETROIT (AP) — A young man who was fired from his food service worker job at the Detroit Tigers’ home stadium after video surfaced showing him spitting on a pizza has been sentenced to 18 months of probation.
Twenty-one-year-old Jaylon Kerley also was ordered Thursday to take an anger management class and not work around food during probation. He earlier pleaded guilty to one felony count and one misdemeanor count of food law violations.READ MORE: Amazon Scammers Stole Over $27M From Consumers In A Year
