He went bats–t crazy.
A Florida man was arrested on Friday for allegedly slugging an umpire in the face at his nephew’s little league baseball game.
Alberto Ramos, 22, disagreed with one of the ump’s calls and confronted him after the game to complain, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
Things escalated, with Ramos raising his voice and the umpire asking him to leave the ballpark, according to an arrest affidavit.
Instead of leaving the scene, the hothead began raging, telling the ump that he would “kick his ass.”
He then punched the ump in the face, cutting the man’s lip and breaking one of his teeth, police said.
“This is completely inexcusable – assaulting a little league official while he’s officiating at a game where children are supposed to be having fun, and learning sportsmanlike behavior,” said Sheriff Grady Judd.
Ramos was charged with one count of felony battery of a sports official and released on a $1,000 bond.
