Battle of the Beltways heats up! Turf war!
Peter Angelos attacks Screech, Racing Presidents, during Nats' Inner Harbor Promotion!
According to sources with no knowledge of the situation, enraged Orioles owner Angelos (reportedly foaming at the mouth) broke up a Nationals promotion yesterday at the Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore, allegedly "punching and kicking, repeatedly" Nationals' mascot Screech and several Racing Presidents. "He was like a rabid dog," our sources tell us. Angelos unavailable for comment.
The Baltimore Sun reports this morning that Angelos had no problem with the promotion, and makes no mention of the attack.
