Man 'deliberately vomits' on police officer at baseball game
21-year-old Matthew Clemmens, of New Jersey, allegedly made himself throw up over the off-duty officer at the game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals in Philadelphia last Wednesday.
Reports suggested it was in retaliation for the fact that a friend of Clemmens had just been ejected from the stadium for unruly behaviour.
'It was the most vile, disgusting thing I've ever seen,' victim Michael Vangelo said on Friday. 'He has two fingers down his throat, he lunges forward and vomits on myself and my 11-year-old.'
According to Vangelo, as he tried to shield his children, Clemmens then punched him in the face, before other fans rushed to help - holding Clemmens until police arrived, and punching him in the face when he tried to escape.
Clemmens now faces charges of, among other things, assault, reckless endangerment, and disorderly conduct.
