London, Ontario police say they’ve identified the asshat who threw a banana onto the ice at the John Labatt Centre last week, when the Flyers played the Detroit Red Wings in an exhibition game. The banana was tossed as Wayne Simmonds skated toward the Detroit net on a shootout attempt.

The jerk’s name is Christopher Moorhouse, and he faces a fine of up to $2,000. Interestingly, the story also says that London Police Chief Brad Duncan has asked people not to consider vigilante action against Moorhouse. I’d assume if they were considering it, that wouldn’t dissuade them. If they were not, mightn’t be a bit more likely now that it’s been raised as a possibility?

In any case, by the powers of Google, Christopher Moorhouse will forever be linked to the racism-charged incident in Ontario, including any time a prospective employer types his name in. Very unfortunate for anyone else sharing that name.
