Phillies fan gets 1-3 months in jail for ballpark "incident" at April Nats game


Matthew Clemens, the infamous Phillies fan who intentionally vomited on an off-duty police captain and his young daughter at an April Nats-Phillies game in Philadelphia, was sentenced to one to three months in jail and community service for his actions. I posted about the guy's disruptive behavior in a previous FanPost here.

The family court judge had some stern words for Clemens, calling him a mean-spirited and vulgar young man who tarnished the reputation of the entire city of Philadelphia. The judge also suggested that Clemens should fufill the community service obligation by cleaning ballpark toilets and trash containers.

If Clemens were assigned to Citizens Bank Park, I think he would probably skip out on his duties and watch the game. Better for him to be assigned to cleaning toilets at, say, a police station, given that it was a police captain that he attacked. I do hope that his time in jail is unpleasant, as unpleasant as he made that April day for the police captain and his daughters.
