Fake Gatorade label suspect posts bond

Thursday, January 14, 2010

DENVER – A man accused of replacing labels on dozens of Gatorade bottles in Colorado with ones that pictured Tiger Woods and the word “unfaithful” is free on a personal recognizance bond.

Thirty-eight-year-old Jason Kay, of Longmont, appeared in U.S. District Court in Denver on Thursday to be advised of charges against him. The charges allege he misbranded and altered food labels with intent to hurt a brand or business.

He waived his right to a preliminary hearing. His next court date is set for Feb. 11.

Kay declined to comment Thursday, and his attorney didn't immediately return a phone message left after business hours.

An affidavit says Kay allegedly told an investigator he considered the switched labels to be pop art.
