A Phillies fan is making headlines today for a class act at Wednesday's game. Police say 21-year-old Matthew Clemmens put his fingers down his throat and purposely vomited on an 11-year-old girl sitting in front of him. Then he learned the hard way that her dad, who was with her, is a cop. He faces charges of simple assault, aggravated assault, harassment, and resisting arrest, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"It was the most vile, disgusting thing I've ever seen," said dad Michael Vangelo, "and I've been a cop for 20 years." Clemmens and his buddy were reportedly drunk and tormenting the Vangelo family throughout game. After a security escorted his friend out of Citizens Bank Park, Clemmens loudly proclaimed he was going to be sick and did his thing. Oh, and he's sporting a nice shiner in his mugshot. (More vomiting stories.)
