Florida lawmakers often come under fire for11 legislation, with the backlash usually being split between party lines. But the latest proposal is something that everyone can agree is outrageous.
According to WCTV, Florida Senator Corey Simon and Representative Taylor Yarkosky have proposed legislation that would criminalize storming the field and allow police to charge anyone who is caught.
And the punishment would be a misdemeanor charge carrying a maximum fine of $2,500 and/or a year in jail.
The punishment would be for anyone who storms “any area designated for use by players, coaches, officials, performers, or personnel administering a covered event that is on, or adjacent to, the area of performance or play” would be in violation.
The bill would also bring the same punishment to those “who drop, toss, or throws any substance, object, or dangerous instrument” in the same areas.
Aren’t there more important things to be worried about?
