TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Six Super Bowl rings may get you special treatment in a lot of places but former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady learned Monday that it won’t get you anything when you’re caught working out in a park that is closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tampa Mayor Jane Castor said during a news briefing Monday that the new Buccaneers quarterback was spotted working out by himself at a park downtown by staff patrol.

The staffer went over to tell him he had to leave and she recognized the man to be the 42-year-old Brady. "He's been sighted," Castor said.

The City of Tampa tweeted from its page Monday, "Sorry @TomBrady! Our @tampaparksrec team can't wait to welcome you and our entire community back with even bigger smiles — until then, stay safe and stay home as much as you can to help flatten the curve."

Everyone needs to follow society's rules at this time. Set a good example for our youth, Tom......

To clear up any confusion, @Buccaneers
QB @TomBrady was SIGHTED in one of our 194 beautiful parks. He was not cited as some media outlets have reported.

We are excited to welcome Tom & everyone back to all of our parks once we have punted COVID-19 downfield!
