J.C. Romero involved in fan altercation

J.C. Romero, fresh off a 50 game suspension for using a banned substance, has found himself in some more hot water. Romero allegedly got into an altercation with a fan on Thursday night when the Phillies where in Tampa Bay playing the Rays. Apparently the fan, Robert Eaton, made some comments to Romero about using steroids that J.C. did not appreciate. Romero allegedly grabbed Eaton by the neck and pushed him. Eaton later filed a police report, so Romero could be dealing with more than just some discipline from the MLB.

While we here at ATPS do not condone the use of violence, it's hard to be too angry with Romero for attacking the fan. Let's hope this situation resolves itself quickly, whether it's just a short suspension or a fine, and Romero can just get back to playing baseball.
