MLB Umpire Assaults AA Flight Attendant

Thu Apr 21, 2005 6:36 am

I could post this in either civ-av or non-av:

I always thought umpires were supposed to be seen and not heard. What a loser!!!:

Basically, the idiot is under investigation for abusing and assaulting an AA flight attendant on a DFW-DEN flight last Sunday.

Another website says alcohol may have been involved.

Apparently another A-hole full of alcohol. I am glad they don't allow baseball bats on aircraft anymore! I would suspect that MLB will suspend him until further notice (or they Should!). I hope the f/a was not injured.
