Washington Nationals Fire Employee for Throwing Coffee on Clerk’s Face


The Washington Nationals has fired an employee after he allegedly threw two cups of hot coffee at a female convenience-store clerk in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic.

A video posted to Twitter showed Jahziel Morel, the administrator of the team’s academy in the Dominican Republic, throwing coffee in the face of a cashier while he had an altercation with her, after filling up two cups.

Morel is planning to turn himself into police on Monday, according to ESPN, which attributed the information to his lawyer Rafael Ariza.

“The Washington Nationals learned of this horrific incident earlier today and immediately terminated the employee,” Mike Rizzo, the Nationals’ president of baseball operations and general manager, told ESPN in a statement on Saturday. “We do not tolerate this type of behavior in our organization.”

Morel has been working for the Nationals since 2017.
