In case you were wondering about the fate of the drunk fan from the Apr. 14 Nats-Phillies game in Philly


According to the AP, 21-yr-old Matthew Clemmens of Cherry Hill, NJ (just outside Philly) pled guilty today to intentionally discharging his stomach contents on another spectator and that person's 11-yr-old daughter at the April 14th game between the visiting Nats and the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Clemmens and his partner-in-drink heckled off-duty police captain Michael Vangelo and his two daughters (15 and 11) throughout the game. Vangelo's older daughter asked the two to stop using profanity. Clemmens' friend was also spitting, hitting Vangelo's younger daughter.

After his friend was ejected from the park, Clemmens apparently got a call on his cell phone from his friend. Clemmens said he needed to do what he needed to do. "I'm going to get sick." He proceeded to put his fingers down his throat, threw up on Vangelo and Vangelo's younger daughter and began to punch Vangelo in the head. Other spectators jumped on Clemmens and stopped him. Authorities also stepped in and landed some blows to Clemmens' face. (Seems to have been justification for that.)

The statement from the public defender: “It’s probable he consumed too much alcohol." You think?

I know there are some problem fans in most cities but I'm not sure there are that many with this type of extreme behavior at the ballpark. The Phillies even won that day, 14-7. Shouldn't Clemmens have been happy about that? I just thought this story was too over the top not to post here.
