Just when you think you’ve seen it all from sports fans, something like this happens.

Matthew Clemmens, 21, of lovely Cherry Hill, New Jersey, intentionally vomited on the 11 year-old daughter of a off-duty Police Officer attending the Phillies-Nationals game Wednesday in the City of Brotherly Love.

The incident began when Clemmens and a companion began cursing, spilling beer, and spitting at Captain Michael Vangelo and his three daughters. Vangelo reported the behavior to authorities, who kicked Clemmens’ friend out of Citizens Bank Park.

Later, Clemmens stated he was going to be sick and stuck his fingers down his throat to begin vomiting. He then threw several punches at Vangelo before he was restrained by security.

Not exactly a delightful fan experience.

Clemmens was arrested (duh!) and charged with a slew of offenses, including aggravated assault and resisting arrest.

Philly fans have long maintained a reputation for being the rudest and crudest in sports, but Wednesday’s incident was beyond comprehension.
