Colo. man sentenced in mislabeled Gatorade case

DENVER – A Colorado man who replaced labels on dozens of Gatorade bottles with an image of Tiger Woods and his wife and the word “unfaithful” has been sentenced to probation.

Jason Kay also was ordered Monday to pay a $1,000 fine. He pleaded guilty in February in U.S. District Court to a misdemeanor charge of mislabeling a food product.

Prosecutors say the bottles with the replaced labels were found in Safeway and King Soopers stores around Colorado in January, with several orange Gatorade bottles incorrectly labeled as mango.

An FBI investigator says Kay claimed he considered what he did to be pop art in the style of Andy Warhol. Defense attorney Paul McCormick says Kay regrets putting the items back on the shelf.
