President Obama catches elbow in pickup game, gets 12 stitches


Ray Decerega of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute did not have Secret Service guns drawn on him, he was not wrestled to the ground. He may not be getting any legislation through the White House in the near future, but it could have been worse.

Decerega caught President Barack Obama with an elbow during a Fort McNair pickup game, according to the Associated Press. (The White House did not say who it was with the elbow but CNBC’s Darren Rovell reported the name.)

Obama was treated back at the white house, where he got a local anesthetic and 12 stitches.

Best joke comes in a tweet by Eric Stangel: Republicans already saying it was a charge.
