THE comedian who threw fake money over Sepp Blatter at a FIFA press conference on Monday will be charged with trespassing by Swiss authorities.
Simon Brodkin was arrested by police in Zurich after the incident but released after questioning.
A police spokesman said: “He will be charged for trespassing because he wasn’t allowed to enter the building.”
“If there will be a trial it is still to be decided by the prosecutor. Trespassing in Switzerland is just prosecuted by request like other minor crimes.”
Outgoing FIFA president Blatter called security after the 38-year-old Brodkin threw fake banknotes at him.
The comedian, whose stage name is Lee Nelson, has a history of high-profile interventions. He interrupted and also tried to board England’s plane heading to last year’s World Cup in Brazil.
