SHARE Man who caused stir with LeBron James jersey at Cleveland Indians game attacked

The man who gained national recognition for wearing a LeBron James Heat jersey to a Cleveland Indians game last year is in serious condition after he was attacked early this morning.

Matthew Bellamy, 30, was walking home from a bar in Sandusky, Ohio around 3 a.m. with a group of friends when a man jumped out of a car and hit him three times, according to witnesses.

Police have issued a warrant for Robert Horton, 23, who faces felony assault charges.

Bellamy secured internet fame last July when he wore a James jersey to Progressive Field a few short days after the basketball star’s controversial decision aired. He was escorted out of the stadium after fans began tossing food and alcohol at him.
