Jesse Barfield Shoved Down Stairs by Son Jeremy

Jesse Barfield escaped with only minor injuries after being shoved down a flight of stairs. By his son.

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, was drafted in the ninth round by the New York Mets in June. According to a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, Barfield will face a Class A misdemeanor charge of family assault, KTRK of Houston reported. The Harris County District Attorney’s office has accepted that charge, according to the ABC affiliate. “[Jeremy] and his father had some kind of argument that apparently took place on the stairs in his house,” Lt. John Martin, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Department, told the Chronicle. “The father was lower on [the] 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.”
