Detroit Lions fan admits calling in bomb threat to Mercedes-Benz Superdome during playoff loss

Full Story Nola.Com

In yet another example of a rabid sports fan accused of bad behavior, a Michigan man is wanted by the FBI on suspicion of threatening to blow up the packed Mercedes-Benz Superdome during the New Orleans Saints' playoff victory over the Detroit Lions three weeks ago. And in a quirky coincidence, the suspect shares the same name as the Saints head coach, albeit with a different spelling.

Shawn Payton, 34, of Jackson, Mich., is wanted on suspicion of phoning in bomb threats during the Saints' stirring second-half comeback en route to a 45-28 victory Jan. 7.

Reached by phone Friday afternoon, Payton, a lifelong Lions fan, admitted making the threatening calls and apologized to Saints fans.
