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: Preorders For Ford Electric F-150 Lightning Tops 100,000

The video appeared on Instagram. Officials determined it was recorded Sept. 21 during the Tigers game against the Kansas City Royals at Comerica Park. The pizza was apparently intended for a customer and Kerley was fired. Tests later showed he didn’t have communicable diseases.MORE NEWS: Michigan Lawmakers Looks To Give More Time For Drivers To Renew Expired Drivers License and Vehicle Registrations
