Hideki Irabu arrested after assaulting a bartender

Ex-MLB pitcher Hideki Irabu was arrested in Osaka, Japan for assaulting a bartender after drinking 20 mugs of beer.

“Irabu, 39, became angered after his credit card was rejected. He allegedly pushed the bartender against the wall, pulled his hair and smashed at least nine liquor bottles.”

Was it really necessary to break 9 bottles?

I love Hideki. He was big and lazy, yet still managed to win himself two World Series rings while only pitching in 1 postseason game. The Fat Toad will always be a favorite of mine. Who can forget the time he beaned Toronto’s Shannon Stewart. Stewart gabe a menacing look toward the pitcher and it was on like Voltron. That angered Irabu, and he headed toward Stewart. Fortunately for Shannon everyone rushed the field or he would have felt the fists of fury. Irabu, you brought so much joy to my life.
