    NFL Great Csonka Fined for Lack of Permit

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — NFL Hall of Famer Larry Csonka was fined $5,000 Wednesday for filming a cable television show in a national forest without obtaining the required permit.

    Magistrate John Roberts also ordered Csonka to pay $3,887 in restitution.

    Csonka is host of "NAPA's North to Alaska," a cable television show that appears weekly on the Outdoor Life Network and features fishing, hunting, history and customs from around the state.

    Csonka reached an agreement in January to plead guilty to two counts of filming on national forest land without proper permits, once on Mitkoff Island and once near Cordova.

    The first incident resulted from a miscommunication between a crew in the field and the Zonk! Productions office, Csonka said after sentencing.

    "The check was supposed to be sent in," he said. "We thought it had. By the time the accountant caught it, it was too late."

    The production company itself reported the second incident in September after realizing it might have filmed on Forest Service land. Csonka said the matter could have been handled administratively but that the Forest Service seemed bent on prosecuting.

    "The National Forest Service and the prosecutors office wanted to make an example out of it," he said.

    Csonka starred as a fullback at Syracuse University and was a first-round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins in 1968.

    A first-round draft pick out of Syracuse in 1968, Csonka appeared in three Super Bowls with the Miami Dolphins and was a member of the 1972 team that went undefeated. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1987.

    In a lot of case you can spend more time in jail for doing something wrong in a national park than you do for drugs. You can go to jail for just picking a flower in a park. So it looks like he got off kind of easy.
