Video: Offerman takes swing at ump

Former MLB All-Star Jose Offerman took a swing at an ump during a game in the Dominican Republic Saturday night.

Looking at the video (embedded below), it's tough to tell what kind of contact he made with first-base ump Daniel Rayburn.

Per the AP, Offerman was detained by security and taken to a police station.

This was not the first time Offerman was involved in an on-field attack. In 2007, he charged the mound with his bat in hand and took a couple swings.

Offerman played 15 seasons in the majors, including a brief sting with the Phillies in 2005.

The clip's a little long, but the swing comes at about the 46-second mark.
