NEW YORK (AP) - Referee Tony Corrente has been fined one game check by the NFL for uttering some obscenities with his microphone on during a Nov. 4 game in Indianapolis between the Colts and Miami Dolphins.
The fine was issued Friday by NFL officiating director Carl Johnson.
In the fourth quarter of the game, Corrente inadvertently left his microphone open during a conference with members of the officiating crew. During that conference, Corrente used obscenities that were heard by the crowd and the CBS television audience.
Johnson says the conduct ``is inappropriate for a game official.''
Corrente has apologized to the Colts organization.
