A New Hampshire woman has been charged with assault for allegedly throwing pizza at an umpire at a Little League game in Concord last month.
Police say 35-year-old Sherri Ferns was working in a concession stand. Her son is on the Concord All-Star team, which lost a close game on July 11. A league investigation said Concord parents and Little League volunteers taunted the umps and tried to provoke them.
Police say Ferns tossed pizza that hit one ump and a parent. She's charged with two counts of simple assault.
The league disciplined nine parents, board members and volunteers, asking some to resign from the board. Ferns was one of the nine.
