Astros pitcher arrested in wedding reception melee - MLB - Yahoo! Sports

I wonder if this guy had a wad of tobacco in his mouth and one hand on his private parts during the party? Some guys can't separate real life from the ball field. I hope he gets to think about it behind bars for a few days.

That happens surprisingly often at weddings. It's an emotionally charged event, lots of alcohol and....

In the early years of my police career I was amazed at how often we were called for fights at wedding receptions.

I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

It is interesting to see this... but there was someone on the radio that was there and got caught up in it.... he said that there was a scuffle and that the police came... and then more police... and more... and that people were trying to get away but that the extra police that came blocked them from doing so... he said Backe was trying to get out just like he was but was hit twice and arrested... that he did nothing wrong...

Now, we will wait and see which version is more correct... but I will hold judgement until I hear more... he doesn't seem the type to do this... but who knows
