There’s a wild story out of a pickup basketball game in Virginia that is almost too wild to believe.
A man called the police after he was fouled too hard in a friendly game at the gym. The story caught attention online when someone else in the game tweeted a photo of the police on the scene to settle the case:

The man in the double sleeves is apparently the one who committed the foul; the man in the black shirt next to the police officer is the one who called. He walked to the front desk to place the 9-1-1 call, according to the Twitter timeline.
Some thoughts here:
(1) This is completely inexcusable and he should have his gym membership revoked. If there is a way to enforce it, he should be banned from any basketball-related activities forever. He shouldn’t even be allowed to watch a game on TV.
Put this face on gym doors everywhere.
(2) The guy in the double sleeves probably fouled the hell out of him. Anyone wearing two shooting sleeves and two ankle braces in a pickup game at the local 24/7 gym is an animal. He obviously plays way too hard and it’s easy to believe it’s not the first time he assaulted someone in a rec game.
(3) This guy is all of us when we read the headline:
Unbelievable move here.
