A 24-year-old man accused of throwing a cell phone that hit Texas right fielder Carl Everett in the back of the head during a game faces a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
Juan-Carlos Covarrubias-Serrano, of Palo Alto, was arrested during the Rangers' 12-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday after fans pointed him out to authorities, and after Everett alerted stadium security.
The phone was thrown from the second deck of the Coliseum, said David Rinetti, the A's vice president of stadium operations. Covarrubias-Serrano was intoxicated, Rinetti said, and will be arraigned on Tuesday.

Hey with that kind of accuracy maybe the Rangers should sign this clown up. He certainly could do a better job than most of the bullpen. And yes, as a BoSox fan, i think it was kind of funny when he hit that jerk Everett.
