Umpire Assaulted During 8u Game

What, the guy was drinking? I would have never suspected that. Maybe he was like Shooter in Hoosiers, he's an assistant coach?

I wonder if there is more to this story. The article says he attempted to get into a dugout? Why? Does he have a kid on the team? Was the team not allowing him into the dugout for a particular reason? Still a few loose ends out there.
Sadly this will likely be the worst of it. Jail overcrowding and he'll be back out, they're not going to lock up a guy for a couple of years for something like this. Just very sad and I hope the umpire heals properly and continues to umpire. And we wonder why no one wants to officiate.
