The New Jersey man who intentionally vomited on a Philadelphia family during a Phillies game last month pleaded guilty today, KYW Newsradio reports. Matthew Clemmens, 21, tormented a man and his two daughters at Citizens Bank Park before declaring, "I need to do what I need to do. I'm going to get sick," a prosecutor said today. Not helping his case: The dad is an Easton, Pa., police officer. Clemmens will be sentenced in July on charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct, and harassment.
