July 25, 2011

An umpire working a softball game at Village Park last week says he was pushed by a player who disagreed with a call, according to an Elm Grove police report.

Elm Grove police are investigating the incident, which allegedly took place during a game Thursday.

Also from the report:

The 50-year-old Waukesha man was umpiring a softball game when an altercation unfolded with a 50-year-old Elm Grove man just before 8:30 p.m. Thursday .

The umpire said the Elm Grove man, a player in the game, threw a baseball glove at him and pushed him when he made a call that the player didn't agree with.

The umpire reported the incident Sunday, saying an existing neck injury was agitated when the Elm Grove man pushed him.
