Ump chokes manager after bump in Taiwan

Umpire Brian Kennedy threw out an EDA Rhinos pitcher for no discernible reason. That lead to Chiung-Lung Huang arguing and also getting run. So the manager bumped the ump and got a choke for his efforts.

50 second mark.

In an even more incredible twist, Kennedy “called the police during the fifth-inning break and announced his intention to press charges against Huang,” according to the United Evening News. Fifteen officers reportedly showed up at the ballpark and requested a written deposition from Huang before Kennedy changed his mind.

Legal action may have been avoided, but both parties were disciplined by the league. Kennedy and Huang were suspended for 10 and three games, respectively, and both were fined.
