Blog Photo - Dallas Latos claims that Pirates fans assaulted her in PNC ParkDallas Latos is the wife of Reds pitcher Mat Latos. Based on her Twitter account, she seems like a pretty pleasant, down-to-earth woman. She's cute, funny, and self-depricating from time to time. Overall, she seems pretty cool.

That's why it was a bit shocking to see that she claims that she was assaulted by Pirates fans during the Reds' one-game playoff with the Bucs in Pittsburgh.

Based on her account of the situation, she was attacked by Pirates fans after defending the grandmother of Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco.

Really? Fans were going after players' grandmothers?

Good lord, Pirates fans. Act like you've been there. Even though we know you haven't been to the playoffs in over 20 years. We know it's your first time in PNC Park, and you're really just Steelers fans disenfranchised by the 0-4 start, but please be civil. This is baseball, not a bathroom in Milledgeville, Ga.

Here's Dallas Latos' account of the situation:
 

Got punched in the head at least 3 times by a pirates fan so this has been cool.

@DallasLatos not intentionally, right? (via @zlovas90)” I was grabbed by my hair and beat in the head. Pretty sure it was intentional.

Pittsburgh police can’t arrest anyone on assault accounts so I’m the one who spent the game talking to law enforcement after being attacked.

Just know that security knew I had been threatened multiple times (not even wearing Cincy gear), chose not to take action & I got attacked.

& for everyone saying I started it, I asked a huge dude to stop being mean to Meso’s grandma & he threatened to beat me so I told security.

A huge man called me a c[expletive removed] & said he was going to kick my ass so I told security. His chick is who threatened me & then attacked me.

The police conveniently didn’t hear me getting threatened that I was going to get my ass beat as I walked into the security office. So cute.
