Maybe Don't Bring Your Crystal Meth to the Little League Game You're Umpiring if You Want to Avoid Going to Jail

KETK — A baseball umpire in the Houston area was arrested Saturday afternoon after he allegedly had crystal meth at a little league baseball tournament. 

According to our NBC affiliate KPRC, deputies were called to Katy Park where witnesses reported “suspicious activity” from the umpire while he was in his car.

The umpire was identified as 35-year-old Brent Thrasher and he was arrested after deputies with a local constable’s office found 2.7 grams of meth inside his car.

Look, I know it's a lot to ask of the crystal meth-doing community to exercise a bit of common sense. But if you're going to partake in those kinds of activities, just wait until you get home from your Little league umpiring gig. It's probably going to save you a trip to jail.

Part of me finds an odd beauty in this, though. Isn't this what youth sports are all about? You head to the ballpark, play your game with a home plate umpire high on meth and then grab a hot dog from the concession stand on the way out. I can promise you with 100 percent certainty I played baseball games in Acworth, Georgia with umpires who used meth within 12 hours of being out there on the field and I turned out just fine.

With some of the clips I've seen from Little League umpires recently, prevalent meth use among the umpiring community may actually be a reasonable explanation.

I guess Big Government is finally taking a stand against meth in youth sports. They're coming for all of our institutions.
