TORONTO — The case of a Toronto Raptors fan accused of making a vulgar comment about the wife of NBA star Stephen Curry on live television has been put over to next month.

Toronto police say 28-year-old Tristan Warkentin of Toronto faces a charge of mischief by interfering with the lawful operation of property.

The incident occurred after Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Raptors and Golden State Warriors on June 2.

Police allege Warkentin referenced Ayesha Curry and used what they call “profane phrases” in an interview with a TV reporter.

Curry, who grew up in Markham, Ont., is an actress, celebrity cook, cookbook author and television personality.

Warkentin did not appear in court Thursday and the case continues Aug. 8
