A former Cox Communications employee in Arizona was arrested for allegedly placing a brief porn clip in the 2009 Super Bowl broadcast carried on the Tucson system owned by Comcast, reports Multichannel News.
The FBI and police in Marana, Arizona arrested Frank Tanori Gonzalez, 38, on suspicion of fraud and computer tampering in connection with the incident, the story says.
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne said in a statement, "These charges related to the 37-second X-rated pornography interruption of Comcast’s Tucson 2009 Super Bowl broadcast, and as a result of the alleged tampering to its servers Comcast suffered significant economic losses."
The article notes that Gonzalez left his job as a supervisor with Cox Arizona soon after the incident.
Regardless of whether customers saw the porn or not, Comcast offered a $10 credit to its 80,000 customers in the market, the story notes.
