Oh Philadelphia, we know you love the whole “we boo Santa” image, but we must say that intentionally vomiting on an 11-year-old girl is a bit much, even for you.
CBS3 reports that a man was arrested at the Phillies game Wednesday and has been accused of intentionally vomiting on the 11-year-old daughter of an off-duty police officer.
“When I say disgusting, there was not only insults and vulgarities directed at us, but also beer was thrown at us,” the girl’s father told CBS 3.
“I actually heard the individual behind me say, ‘I’m gonna get sick’, then I couldn’t believe what I saw. He actually had his fingers down his mouth and into his throat to make himself vomit. He vomited and lurched forward and it was hitting my daughter,” he explained.
The police officer and several other fans subdued the man until police arrived. He’s been charged with simple assault, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, harassment, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
In brighter news, a nice fan caught a ball and gave it to the girl, who apparently slept with it like a Teddy Bear. Awwww.
Do you worry about taking your kids to sporting events because of people like “vomit-fan”, or does “nice-ball-catching” fan make up for it?
