Designer Calvin Klein has helped launch a new law in New York thanks to his courtside basketball chat with NEW YORK KNICKS star LATRELL SPREWEL.

Klein was escorted back to his seat at a basketball game in March (03) after wandering onto the Madison Square Garden court to talk to Sprewel.

And now New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has signed a new 'Calvin Klein Bill' aimed at keeping rowdy fans away from athletes in the playing area.

Anyone found guilty under the new bill faces a fine of $25,000 (GBP15,625) and a year in jail.
