Portis' mom reportedly punches out fan
Portis' mom reportedly punches out fan

Redskins running back Clinton Portis took a beating in a victory over the Eagles on Sunday. But his mother apparently dished one out, according to a report in The Washington Post.

The Post says that in the fourth quarter of the game in Philadelphia, Portis' mom, Rhonnel Hearn, was sitting in the end zone at Lincoln Financial Field with Portis' stepfather and some friends when an Eagles fan tossed a beer on the group.

Hearn responded by punching the woman in the face.

And that's why Hearn watched part of the game on the Redskins' sideline.

"She busted some lady in the nose, but that'll just teach you about messing with her," Portis said.

"I think fans take that too serious. People come to the game to have a good time, that's what you should do. If you decide your team is losing and you want to cause trouble, then you're going to get what you're looking for. And (Sunday), whoever that fan was, they got what they were looking for."

In the game, Portis rushed for 112 hard-earned yards to help the Redskins advance to the playoffs, but he reinjured an already sore shoulder and wrist after he was horse-collared in the fourth quarter by Eagles linebacker Trent Cole.

But he remains proud of his mother.

"My mom can protect herself," Portis said.

RE: Portis
I wouldn't mess with anybody who's son wears a simulated wrestling championship belt on the sidelines and dresses up the way he does. You gotta know that the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. A bit nutty those Portis' clan are.

That's pretty bad ass. Good for her.

Ever been to an Eagles game in Philly? That place has a notorious reputation for a reason.

Good for her.
