CALLER, YOU'RE ON: "VOMIT MAN" SENTENCED!

Remember that 21-year-old guy who intentionally vomited on a spectator and his 11-year-old daughter at a Philadelphia Phillies home game in April. Well, the dude was sentenced on Friday (July 30) to up to three months in jail and community service, which the judge suggested be fulfilled by cleaning ballpark toilets and trash.
Matthew Clemmens (pictured at his April 14 booking), of Cherry Hill, N.J., was taken into custody immediately after Family Court Judge Kevin Dougherty imposed the sentence. The fan that Clemmens vomited on and punched, Michael Vangelo of Easton (PA), said his daughter, Mikayla, is still traumatized.
The family has received offers from the team and strangers for tickets to future games, but “she does not want to go,” said Vangelo, a police captain. He said he also has not returned to Citizens Bank Park since the assault.
Clemmens pleaded guilty in May to charges of assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct. He admitted he stuck his fingers down his throat and vomited on Vangelo and Mikayla at a Phillies-Nationals game on April 14.
In case you didn't hear or forgot about it, Clemmens and his friend were cursing and heckling the Vangelo family from the first inning. Vangelo’s 15-year-old daughter asked them to stop cursing around her younger sister, resulting in more heckling and cursing. The family was doused with beer when they rose to cheer a Phillies home run, and Vangelo eventually complained to security that Clemmens’ friend was spitting, which hit his younger daughter’s jacket and seat.
After the friend was ejected, Clemmens was sitting alone when he answered his cell phone and said: “I need to do what I need to do. I’m going to get sick,” prosecutors said.
He then put his fingers down his throat and “projectile vomited,” Vangelo said. He also punched Vangelo several times, causing his ear to bleed, before being tackled by other spectators and arrested.
The judge also ordered Clemmens to pay Vangelo $315, the cost of the five tickets for him and his family to attend the game. Vangelo said he intended to donate the money to the Easton Police Athletic League.

Rita, you're on:
"Good sentence judge! I hope the prison pigpen puts this disgusting, demented, deranged, vile, filthy, lowlife, loser, degenerate, blubberbutt piece of garbage on a diet. It sure needs one and it might save taxpayers some money. "Banjo Duel from Deliverance " will be this punk's wakeup call."
Willis, you're on:
"I hope he/she has that gag reflex under control because there is going to be a lot more than fingers going down his/her throat in prison. He/she isn't going to want to put those fingers anywhere near his/her mouth after the places they're going to be for the next month."

Monty, you're on:
"Hopefully, the little girl won't be attending any fraternity parties when she gets a few years older. If this traumatized her, just wait."
Laticia, you’re on:
"His obnoxious behavior is probably compensating for his little peepee! Real men do not act this way."

"What do you expect from a Phillies fan? And they keep breeding."
Edgar, you’re on:
“What a douche. Spike his hair and add him to the 'Jersey Shore' cast.”
Zach, you're on:
"What is this country coming to when a man can’t puke on another man during a dispute? First they won’t let us fight each other, now we can’t projectile vomit at each other? How are we supposed to let people know we’re angry at them? Words? Haha, like those ever work."

Danny, you’re on:
“Can't you hear his cellmate? 'Hey Pillsbury, gag on this'.”
Elvin, you're on:
“Targeting the 11-year-old was a bit low. If she'd been a whiny 16-year-old Miley Cyrus fan, then it would be alright.”
Vic, you’re on:
“Seems to me he was born to root for the Mets. You should see my nephew in Queens. He makes this guy look like an alter boy. I think he changes his socks once a month.”

Tina, you’re on:
”They should let the public know when this jerk is cleaning, so they can leave their 'appreciation' on the floor.”

Frank, you’re on:
“What no batteries or coins to throw around, they left their guns and knives in the car before they came to the ballpark. Puke is the new weapon of choice these days, hold on...let me puke-punch this innocent man and torment his entire family.”
Mr. Baseball, you’re on:
“Oh boy, community service at baseball games. I want that.”
Leonard, you’re on:
“He should be sentenced to three years of attending all Astros games. He'd kill himself by Year Two.”
Wayne, you’re on:

Now, let's go to a break and pay some bills!
PS - The guy wasn't a Phillies fan and doesn't even live in Philly. He was a Nationals fan. Once again, Philly gets a bad rap.
