Peoria Chiefs Pitcher Julio Castillo Is Psycho, Arrested on Felony Assault
Rekindling the spirit of Jose Offerman, Julio Castillo did one of the worst things I’ve ever seen come happen in a sports brawl. As you might have seen on the highlight shows, the Dayton Dragons and Peoria Chiefs had a massive fight on Thursday night. I mean this fight was full of venom, with players acting with seriously malicious intent. Check out the video from a fan’s view:
That was easily one of the worst fights I’ve ever seen. There were a few hit batters involved and an infielder taken out by a baserunner that led to the brawl. And man, Julio Castillo, what the eff were you thinking? Roid-rage much? Castillo hurled a ball towards the Dayton dugout, it ricocheted into the crowd where it hit a fan who was taken to the hospital. Psycho Castillo was arrested, faces a felony assault charge, and probably won’t be pitching much longer in the minors. Heck, he could even have his visa stripped. As for the body count, 15 total players were suspended. Yikes. And may we never speak of this incident again.
