DETROIT — A former Comerica Park employee who was shown on video spitting on pizza he was preparing was charged with a felony and a misdemeanor on Tuesday.

The man, 20-year-old Jaylon Kerley, was arraigned on Tuesday morning. He has been charged by the Wayne County prosecutor with two different counts of food law violations — a four-year felony and a 90-day misdemeanor.At Kerley's arraignment, a "not guilty" plea was entered on his behalf by the court.

He was given a $100,000 bond and required to undergo testing by the Detroit Health Department for "infectious diseases, including Hepatitis A."Michigan is undergoing a Hepatitis A outbreak and the disease can spread through food contamination.

In a statement, prosecutor Kym Worthy said "The allegation in this case is disturbing on so many levels. Yesterday I literally refused to order food. We all want to make sure all food that we order is clean, safe, germ-free, and unadulterated with any substance that should not be there."

A probable cause conference is scheduled for Oct. 3, and a preliminary examination for Oct. 10. Both hearings are before Judge Lydia Nance-Adams in 36th District Court.Comerica Park is the home of the Detroit Tigers.
