Rodney Hood Fined $35K For Cell Phone Incident

Behave, Rodney.

Just blame it on the inversion, Rodney. After receiving his second technical foul in the third quarter of Utah’s win over the Wizards, Jazz Guard Rodney Hood slapped the cell phone out of a fan’s hand as he filmed the Jazzman leaving the court. It is one in a series of athlete interactions with fans resulting in fines, including Austin Rivers‘ verbal outburst at a fan earlier this season.

Hood’s ejection seemed to light a fire under the Jazz, who went on a run to beat the Wizards, who have struggled against sub-.500 teams such as the Jazz so far this season.
