Technology is usually helpful, except when it isn’t. A youth baseball umpire “lost” his iPhone (Fail #1), “tracked it down” via Find My iPhone (Win #1), accused someone who was “in the proximity” using an iPhone of stealing it (Fail #2), punched the “thief” (Fail #3), took “HIS” iPhone (Fail #4), then later “found” the misplaced iPhone where he had left it (Fail #5).

The umpire is now facing charges of assault and disorderly conduct (Fail #6). Final score? Fail – 6 Win – 1 – all brought on by some pretty cool technology.
