Possibly Drunk High School Umpire Passes Out On Field, Fights Medics, Gets Tased and Arrested
C’mon, Blue: you’re seeing double out there! An Illinois high school umpire passed out on the field of a game while he was umpiring last Friday. Prior to the nap, spectators say Daryl Jacobson, 49, was “visibly under the influence.” When medics came to assist Jacobson, witnesses say he fought them off to the point where he had to be tased twice by police.
“I heard from my friends that the guy was resisting arrest and he said a few things he shouldn’t have said,” Stark County High School Student Noel Ellis tells us. “They tased him twice.”
Jacobson is now in custody facing two charges each of aggravated battery and resisting a peace officer. The big questions: how is there no video from the incident, and does FanGraphs have a PitchFx chart comparison of Jacobson from Friday?
