gatorade1Denver, Jan 15, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The man who had been arrested on the charges of tampering with Gatorade labels has been released on personal bond. The man, who has been identified by the police as Jason Eric Kay, and hails from Longmont, had been arrested after he was traced from the email address that he had left in the pop art that he had created. The 38 year old unemployed pop art artist had been convicted of tampering with brand labels with the possible intention of harming a business.

Jason Eric Kay had been held responsible for the fake Gatorade labels that had been found in one of the stores at Colorado. The Tropical Mango Gatorade bottles were of the capacity of one quart, and had been found with the labels intact, but with some additional art on them, in the form of pictures of Tiger Woods and his wife, and the word “unfaithful’ written beside them. When he was arrested, Jason Eric Kay had not denied the allegations slapped on him, but said that he had chosen the picture of Tiger woods to point out how pointless the whole furor over the scandals is.

Moreover, Jason Eric Kay also commented that he had tampered with the Gatorade labels in order to gain some recognition, and that he considered it to be nothing but pop art. He has been released by the court on a personal recognizance bond, and had bypassed a preliminary hearing in court. He was not available for comment immediately after the release. However, his lawyer commented that Jason Eric Kay understood the implications of his actions, and claimed that earlier, he had not realized that he was committing a crime.
