Violence wasn’t likely part of the job description for usher at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

A stadium staffer was punched and bitten by an unruly male baseball fan while he was being escorted out for sitting in the wrong section during Tuesday’s Washington Nationals-Atlanta Braves game.

According to TMZ, the incident started after two ushers told the man he was sitting in a section he didn’t have a ticket to be in. The fan refused to budge.

In a now-viral video, the stubborn male can be seen yelling and pointing at one usher while recording it all on his cellphone. Another usher then used his chest and arms to push the fan up the steps as fans booed him and chanted, “Get him out.”

As the fan continued to move up the steps, he blew a kiss to another ballpark patron who showed up to yell at him. The portly fan distracted the usher by talking smack and then sucker punched him in the face, knocking him into his coworker.

The fan also bit the prone usher in the process, according to TMZ.

Blood began trickling down the stubborn fan’s face as the usher grabbed the man around the chest and likely scratched him as he tried to wiggle out of the hold.

Police then arrived on scene to escort the man away as other fans called him “a**hole.”

The fan was charged with assault, TMZ said.
