Is this why they always say, "Hi Mom?" on TV?

Barfield injured after son shoves him down stairs

HOUSTON (AP) -- Former All-Star outfielder Jesse Barfield was taken to a hospital Sunday after he suffered a head injury when he was shoved down a flight of stairs by his 18-year-old son, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Barfield, 46, was treated and released, but Jeremy Barfield was arrested shortly after 8 a.m., the newspaper reported.

The younger Barfield, a high school star outfielder drafted in the ninth round by the New York Mets in June, was expected to be charged with a misdemeanor, said Lt. John Martin, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff's Department.

"(Jeremy) and his father had some kind of argument that apparently took place on the stairs in his house," Martin told the Chronicle. "The father was lower on stairs than Jeremy was and ... at some point during argument, Jeremy shoved him and he ended up falling down the stairs and struck his head pretty hard on the floor." more
