Talk about being in hot water.
The Nationals have fired an employee who threw two small cups of hot coffee at the face of a female convenience store employee. The incident happened in the Dominican Republic.
In a Twitter video posted over the weekend, Jazhiel Morel, who was an administrator of the Nationals’ academy in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic, was shown throwing the coffee at the female employee.
“The Washington Nationals learned of this horrific incident earlier today and immediately terminated the employee. We do not tolerate this type of behavior in our organization,” Nationals executive Mike Rizzo told ESPN.
Morel has reportedly agreed to turn himself in to police. There’s not much he can do at this point, the video evidence is overwhelming.
Double fisting coffee turned out to be a very bad idea.
