Matthew Clemmons, the “man” best known for puking on a fellow spectator at a Philadelphia Phillies game, finally received his sentence. Family Court Judge Kevin Dougherty handed Clemens a three-month jail term, 50 hours of community service and two years of probation. The judge recommended that he fulfill his service time at the very stadium that he committed the assault, specifically cleaning the toilets and emptying trash.
Now that’s a judge that gets it.
As the sentence was read, Clemmens’ family, most of whom like in Florida and took the train up to be with him, burst into sobs as he was handcuffed and led away. Before sentencing he read the following statement:
“I’m working every day to clear this black mark from me and my family. Give me the opportunity to show you who I am and not who I was that one afternoon.”
The judge did not buy any of it, saying that the remorse was feigned and that he tarnished the reputations of his family and an entire city. If you are not familiar with the story, read our initial report of the incident.
As a Phillies fan, Clemmens will have to watch Roy Oswalt’s first start in red pinstripes at his new address… most likely vomiting again as his new cellmate “welcomes” him to the club.
