Chivas USA defender suspended 3 games for head butt

CARSON, Calif. -- Chivas USA defender Alex Zotinca was fined $1,250 and suspended three games Wednesday for head-butting Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Kevin Harmse on Thursday night in the aftermath of a dispute involving David Beckham.

Harmse was fined $250 for throwing a punch at Zotinca following the head butt.

Zotinca and Harmse were issued red cards late in the first half of the game, won by Chivas USA 3-0. A red card carries an automatic one-game suspension and $250 fine. The MLS Disciplinary Committee decided after reviewing the incident to add further sanctions.

Beckham was angered after being tackled from behind by Chivas USA's Jesse Marsch, who ran up behind Beckham and applied a high kick to the Galaxy captain's upper right hip, causing Beckham to fall forward.

A shoving match ensued between the teams, which Beckham quickly backed out of and circled around. That's when Zotinca head-butted Harmse in the scrum, and Harmse reacted by throwing a punch.

Harmse's one-game suspension for his red card was served last Sunday in the Galaxy's 3-0 loss at Colorado. Zotinca served his red-card suspension the same day in Chivas USA's 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake, and must sit out three additional games.
