This Texas City Councilman Spiced Up His Son’s Little League Game By Punching His Ex-Wife


If you’re looking to get arrested, hit your ex-wife in front of a ton of witnesses and a cop in the middle of a little league game. A councilman in Baytown, Texas, has taken this sound advice and put it into practice, striking his wife in an unprovoked attack after showing up to her son’s little league game.

Via Click2Houston.com:

“Investigators said Mercedes Renteria’s ex-wife was watching her son play a Little League baseball game at a field in the 1500 block of North 10th Street on Wednesday. Police said Renteria showed up at the game, walked up to her where she was seated in the bleachers, and punched her in the back.

Investigators said Renteria then began swearing at his ex-wife while witnesses looked on.”

Renteria is now facing assault and disorderly conduct charges, because this is what happens when you punch your ex-wife in front of a ton of witnesses. We’ll presume that the game did not stop because SPORTS MUST GO ON. Since so many details remain unknown, including what sparked such violence and the nitty gritty of the cussing, feel free to hop onboard the rampant speculation train in the comments. We’re going with:

“Oh you think I’m an alcoholic? Taste this ironic twist of pain.”

/liver punch.

At the very least, it is clear why his wife is now an ex.

    I know this man personally. He posted a bullshit “I was framed” excuse in Facebook this morning. I called him on it & guess what? Yep he bowed up, cursed me out & blocked me. Good thing I copied the conversation first. I’m sure CPS & the DA will find it amusing! Rot in hell low life. KARMA is a bitch & female!

    Its always horrible when family violence occurs, but this includes a public official…….Not only is he a city councilman, but he is associated with the taskforce against domestic abuse in the city…… first he hit his ex spouse in front of their child and numerous spectators, then he posts “I was falsely accused” on Facebook, then he was called out on it and decided to curse someone who never said one cross word except “if u did it own it apologize and take your licks”……THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIMW HE HAS BEEN IN TROUBLE FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE!!!!! DONT DROP THE SOAP MERCEDES
