The man who was caught spitting on pizza at Comerica Park was sentenced to 18 months of probation.

Jaylon Kerley, 20, pleaded guilty to food service violations after he was caught spitting on pizza in a video back in September.

He is also required to take an anger management class, continue therapy and is not allowed to work with food during the duration of his probation.

On Sept. 21, Kerley spat on a pizza he was preparing and covered his saliva with pizza sauce. The incident was captured on video that soon went viral and was reported to the head of security at Comerica Park.

Kerley tested negative for any sexually transmitted diseases, HIV and any type of Hepatitis, after the city health department requested a mandatory health testing.
