Livan Hernandez arrested for allegedly trying to hit man with golf club

Livan Hernandez arrested for allegedly trying to hit man with golf club

January 8, 2003

MIAMI (AP) -- Giants pitcher Livan Hernandez was arrested Wednesday for allegedly trying to hit an elderly man with a golf club during a street fight.

Hernandez, 27, was charged with felony aggravated assault after he got into a ``violent'' scuffle Wednesday with the man, who received a minor cut on the back of his head, according to a witness account cited in a police statement. ADVERTISEMENT


The pitcher, who won the 1997 World Series MVP with the Marlins, then went into his car's trunk and pulled out a golf club, the unidentified witness told police.

Hernandez was still being questioned Wednesday evening and was to be sent to Miami-Dade County jail later in the day, police Lt. Bill Schwartz said. Attorney information for Hernandez was not immediately known.

Hernandez signed with Florida in 1996 after defecting from his native Cuba. He was a 22-year-old rookie in 1997 when he won both starts against the Cleveland Indians in the World Series.

But he pitched poorly during the next two seasons and was traded to San Francisco in 1999. He had a 6-0 postseason record going into last year's World Series, but lost twice and was allowed four runs in Game 7 as the Giants lost to the Anaheim Angels.

He has a 69-69 record and a 4.42 ERA in eight major league seasons.

I've hit people with golf clubs before. Of course I did it while playing Grand Theft Auto Vice City.

Just like on the mound, he missed the guy by a good 5 feet or so.

if he would have yelled 'FORE' first, would he still get in trouble?

Now can the Giants please use this as an excuse to get rid of him? Unfortunately, his trade value, as low as it was, just got lower... but anyway, I hope I never see him pitch for the G-men again...

So, can use start using Livan as slang now?
i.e. "I got so mad I went Livan on the chair." or "There was 1 second left on the shot clock and threw up this half court shot but I Livaned it (missed it by a mile)"
