Fake Gatorade bottles suspect considers plea
Wednesday, February 17, 2010
DENVER – Prosecutors say a man accused of replacing labels on dozens of Gatorade bottles in a supermarket with an image of Tiger Woods and his wife and the word “unfaithful” is considering pleading guilty.
Federal prosecutors say 38-year-old Jason Kay will have a chance to enter his plea Friday in Denver. Investigators say Kay replaced the labels on bottles that were found in Safeway and King Soopers stores around Colorado. The bottles didn't appear to have been opened.
An FBI investigator says Kay claimed he considered what he did to be pop art in the style of Andy Warhol.
Kay had been charged with misbranding and altering food labels with intent to hurt a brand or business.
