It's not news that fans in Philadelphia are a rough bunch — heck, their football stadium used to have a court inside it — but one Philly fanatic allegedly took it to the next level Wednesday night by intentionally vomiting on an 11-year-old girl and her father at a Phillies game.
According to Easton, PA police captain Michael Vangelo, who was off-duty with his daughters to see the Phillies play the Nationals, a group of fans sitting nearby were yelling obscenities from the very start of the game.
When Captain Vangelo and his eldest daughter asked them to stop, he was allegedly showered with beer and water and his 11-year-old was spit on. Vangelo reported the men and they were ejected from the game – and that's when things really went downhill.
Another fan, now identified by police as 21-year-old Matthew Clemens, pictured, didn't take to kindly to Captain Vangelo getting those fans (who he was not actually associated with) booted from the game and decided to express his disgust by being, well, disgusting and giving his own version of the boot.
Vangelo claims Mr. Clemens got behind his 11-year-old daughter, stuck his fingers down his throat and projectile vomited all over her.
When other fans intervened and jumped in to subdue Clemens, he reportedly kept on vomiting and it got all over them too. Is this guy related to Linda Blair or something?
Clemens was arrested and faces charges that include
Aggravated Assault, Simple Assault, Harassment and Resisting Arrest.
In the end, someone felt a little brotherly love for the poor little girl and gave her a caught foul ball. Guess they thought she needed a little something to remember this game by.
