Did J.C. Romero Assualt a Fan Due to Roid Rage?

J.C. RomeroOne member of the Philadelphia Phillies was involved in a confrontation with a fan following Thursday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, according to the team.

Speculation of who the player was didn’t take long. The St. Petersburg Times reported that Phillies reliever J.C. Romero assaulted a fan who made fun of his steroid use. A police dispatcher confirmed the report of a battery call at 11 pm Thursday night.

The person whom Romero assualted was Robert Eaton, a 25-year-old father of two, who was trying to get autographs from the Phillies players after the game. While doing so, Eaton yelled at Romero, “How about you get me some juice?”

“He reared back and kinda grazed my chin and grabbed me by the neck and threw me back. I was in shock. I don’t feel what I said was wrong,” Eaton said. “I feel if you cheat the game you’re going to hear it from people. He brought that on himself. I just can’t believe that a professional athlete would cross the line.”
