CHICAGO (AP) - Prosecutors say a 58-year-old New Orleans Saints fan has been found guilty of shoving Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey at Soldier Field last December.

The Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/1N9CyYc ) reports that a Cook County judge on Tuesday found Richard Kohnke of New Orleans guilty of a misdemeanor charge of battery with insulting or provoking conduct. Kohnke was sentenced to six months of court supervision.

The incident happened on Dec. 15 when the Bears were hosting the New Orleans Saints and McCaskey spotted several Saints fans sitting in his seats. The Chicago Bears said at the time that McCaskey talked to the fans briefly and as he walked away to find stadium security, Kohnke got up and shoved him to the ground.
