So, you’re coaching a team in a state Babe Ruth tournament (15-year-olds) and your team is ahead going into the late innings after being down earlier. There’s a close call at first base. Do you: C) assault the field umpire resulting in a forfeit.
Here’s more from NBC Bay Area:
A Vallejo baseball coach was arrested at police headquarters on Tuesday for battery on a sports official during a dispute at a state Babe Ruth League tournament game at Wilson Park on Sunday David Daniel Davis, 42, allegedly assaulted the field umpire, who had called one of his players out at first base, police said.
The Vallejo team had rallied from a 4-2 deficit to take a 5-4 lead in the seventh inning of the game against a team from Sonoma, but had to forfeit the game after the alleged assault, the team’s manager John Larson said.
The forfeit was the second loss for the team of 15-year-olds and it eliminated them from the eight-team, Northern California Babe Ruth League tournament, Larson said. Davis went to police headquarters Tuesday to file a complaint against the umpire but, based on eyewitnesses’ statements, Davis was arrested for battery, police Lt. Abel Tenorio said.
Our first streaker for the 2010 football season, this time in Vancouver where a naked fan ran onto the field during the BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes game. He does make a couple of nice moves before being brought down by a pack of security guards. And, fortunately, the video is just blurry enough to hide this guys small naughty bits. Still, probably not eh best thing to be watching at work today.
Here’s more from Canoe.ca:
The streaker facing a ban from Empire Field won’t face criminal charges, according to Vancouver police. Friday’s B.C. Lions home game against the Montreal Alouettes was interrupted in the second half when a naked man romped across the field and was tackled by security. The man now faces a ban from future Lions games, but escaped possible indecent exposure and mischief charges.
“We gave that person some advice on future conduct and basically told him to put on his clothes and get out of here,” said VPD spokesperson Const. Jana McGuiness. “To criminally charge someone is a really big step. It seems like a bit much.”
Those darn cell phones! Always leaving an electronic trail.
Former Pigeon Forge High School assistant football coach and former Tennessee wide receiver Josh Briscoe has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor and solicitation of a minor. According to court records, the charges stem from a text message Briscoe allegedly sent to a 15-year-old student in August 2009.
Briscoe’s attorney, Joe Baker, told the Knoxville News Sentinel the authorities interpreted what were innocent comments in the worst light possible. Baker did not immediately return a call from the Associated Press. Court records show the student received a text that read, “You owe me a lil action for going off like that,” and suggested a sexual favor. A police investigation did not uncover additional improper conduct.
