A Massachusetts Police Officer Gets Put On Paid Leave For Directing a Racial Slur At a Red Sox Player

Remember a couple weeks ago when we told you about the jackass who directed a racial slur at Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford during a minor league baseball game? Turns out, that jackass was actually a Massachusetts police officer who was just put on paid leave after an internal investigation found him to be the one who used the slur. Apparently, Officer John Perrault called Crawford a "Monday" during the July 5 game between the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Portland Sea Dogs. As a result, he's currently on paid leave pending a disciplinary hearing that'll take place next week to determine his future with the police force.

Let this be a lesson to all of you: If you don't have anything nice to say at a baseball game—or, at any sporting event for that matter—STFU. Because what you say could cost you your career.
