Dallas Latos, the wife of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Matt Latos, said she was struck repeatedly by a Pittsburgh Pirates fan multiple times during Tuesday's National League wild-card game.

In one tweet, Latos said she was watching the game at the Budweiser Bowtie Bar, which is located near the park's right-field foul pole. She claimed that her hair was pulled and complained that security didn't come to her assistance. She has tweeted often after the altercation, offering details of the incident and lashed out at those who don't believe her version of events.

"All the pirates fans trolling my account & making jokes about this are sick," she said in another tweet.

Latos, who added that she "wasn't wearing Reds gear," said she filed a police report and didn't fight back.

Latos claims she asked a male Pirates fan to stop insulting the grandmother of Reds player Devin Mesoraco and was subsequently threatened.

During a Wednesday news conference, Pittsburgh police said they were summoned to the bar at around 9:30 p.m. EST, where they found 20 to 30 Pirates and Reds fans yelling at each other, according to CBS Pittsburgh. Warnings were issued, but the altercation turned physical.

Police didn't witness the alleged attack on Latos, and no arrests were made. Latos declined medical attention and didn't have any visible signs of being attacked, police told reporters.

This didn't sit well with Latos.
