It was a pretty rough series last week for the Milwaukee Brewers against the Chicago Cubs.

First off, the Brew Crew lost 3-of-4 games and their standout closer Corey Knebel to a left hamstring injury, there was a viral video of a fight in the stands at section 409 (Brewers' fans lost), and now another embarrassing incident.

Fox Milwaukee reporter A.J. Bayatpour was arrested after getting into a fight with NBC Milwaukee reporter Ben Jordan in the stands during Friday's game between the Brewers and Cubs.

Basically, the two got into a fight after Bayatpour was ridiculing Jordan's girlfriend Madeline Anderson that works at WITI according to the police report. The alleged punch was so violent by Bayatpour that it caused 'significant injury' according to the police and he could face various battery charges as early as Tuesday.

His employer released the following statement.

"FOX6 News is aware a WITI employee was involved in an altercation at Miller Park on Friday night, and we are investigating the incident."

During the game, there were five citations and 11 ejections in the stands. I guess it's just another day at Miller Park.
