A baseball player in the Dominican Republic was arrested after attacking the umpire with his bat, according to TMZ Sports.

Dominican reporter Hector Gomez shared a video of the incident.

In the video, a player identified as Elvis Lebron is shown arguing with the umpire. The umpire ejects Lebron, who takes a swing while holding the bat in his right hand. He also throws his helmet at the umpire.
