Reggie Jackson gets into foul-mouthedl confrontation with fan at Cooperstown restaurant (VIDEO)

It's baseball's Hall of Fame induction weekend, and what better way to reminiscence about the past than having Reggie Jackson getting into a heated, physical confrontation in the serene setting of Cooperstown.

And no, it wasn't with a reincarnation of Billy Martin.

According to the New York Daily News, Jackson got into a scuffle with a fan asking for the Yankee-legend's autograph at a Main Street restaurant.

Warning: Video contains explicit language:

While most of the other Hall of Famers were attending HOF chairman Jane Clark's annual Friday night party at her Cooperstown home, Jackson instead opted to have dinner in town with friends at the Mount Fuji restaurant on Main Street. But before Jackson and his party could sit down, Jackson was besieged by autograph seekers. After apparently accommodating a few of them, he became agitated when at least one of them came back for a second autograph.

"I already signed one," he screamed at the fan, "and you go back to the f------ line and come up again. That's f----- up. Now it's my time to eat dinner with people I seldom see. It's f----- up. Pay for them like everybody else."

The fan then appeared to say something more to provoke Jackson, and at that point the 69-year-old retired Yankee slugger appeared to shove the man, as others in the crowded restaurant tried to intervene. A further tussle ensued, and Jackson continued his profanity-laced tirade.

"I need a f----- body guard," Jackson screamed.

Sounds like the famously combative Mr. October is back in July form.
