Former Hammer Tomas Repka is in hot water after lashing out at a cameraman following a Czech league game.
The current Sparta Prague captain had just been sent off in the league fixture against Teplice deep into injury time for abusing an official, before he sent the startled TV man sprawling. He is likely to be heavily fined by the Czech FA.
Repka - no stranger to controversy - was also fined £4,000 by his club, whose defeat in the game was their first reversal of the current campaign.
Repka spent five years at West Ham between 2001-06, playing almost 200 league games for the club.
He arrived in East London as an international outcast following a falling out with the Czech manager, and further enhanced his reputation by receiving his marching orders in his first game for United.
Despite managing to knuckle down for the latter part of his Hammers career his reputation continued to proceed him - unfairly perhaps at times.
You can see the incident here and here.
