PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A New Jersey man is facing charges after police say he intentionally vomited on an 11-year-old girl and her father in the stands during a Phillies game.

Matthew Clemmens was arraigned Friday on charges stemming from his behavior at Wednesday's Phillies-Nationals game.

Police say the 21-year-old Clemmens made himself vomit on an off-duty police captain and his daughter after a companion was kicked out for unruly behavior.

Easton police Capt. Michael Vangelo says he saw Clemmens put his fingers down his throat. Philadelphia police say Clemmens also punched Vangelo and vomited on an arresting officer.

Clemmens is in custody on charges including assault and harassment, and his bail is $12,000.
