Yeah-Yeah -- An Eye for an Eye?

4/24/2009 12:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Marty YorkIt may not be a defense to criminal battery, but at least the dude who played Yeah-Yeah in "The Sandlot" is telling cops a story that's consistent with his injuries.

Marty York tells us, yeah, he backhanded his GF, but only after she attacked him in his car during an argument. Now we have York's mugshot that seems to back up his story -- that she hit him.

Is that a defense to striking the girl? It may be up to a jury.

P.S. -- They're back together.

Those are some fabulous eyebrows! Who'd thought someone so "macho" could have such over-waxed, plucked and shaped eyebrows?!

I don't think it's right to just hit a woman (with a balled fist), but this seems acceptable since she hit him first AND he didn't punch her and inflict damage like you know he could have.

If women want to be treated as equals, this whole 'men can't punch women NO MATTER what' needs to end. It's not bad enough that we get hosed in divorce cases, but if you get punched by a woman; there's nothing wrong with using the back of your hand in retaliation...perhaps even application of the 'goon hand' from time to time would be even more appropriate if you're struck by a woman.

Take a look at this photo. His LEFT eye is blackened. If he was in his car with his girlfriend (presumably driving) then his girlfriend would have been on his RIGHT side. Wouldn't she then have hit his right eye? Maybe the police think his story is consistent with his injuries, but they must know something they're not telling cause this doesn't make sense to me.

He was justified, plain and simple. You can't just hit people and not expect them to defend themselves, whether its a man or a woman.

His injuries are to the wrong side of his face if he was driving when she hit him.

i hate the way a girl can beat on a guy all day.. even blacken an eye. and then we make one move to defend ourselves and all of a sudden we're women beaters. its ridiculous.
especially because girls know a guy can't hit them back so they get more violent than anyone when arguments arise

Jen,

Here are my thought on your question & comment:

If She was sitting next to him (passenger side), that leaves just about 1ft of distance between his face and her left arm assuming they were driving in anything but a Humvee...that distance isn't enough to throw a solid punch unless you have really short arms or are very strong where you could snap a jab off like a boxer. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that she doesn't fit either of those examples.

The likely scenario is that he turned to face her when they were arguing and she punched him with her right fist as that side of her body & the car would've allowed for enough power & room for her to take a good swing at him from the passenger side. If she had been driving and swung hard enough to hit him like that in the left eye, it's probable that they would've lost control of the vehicle if it was in motion or she wouldn't have the distance to achieve a good punch given the distance to his face from her right hand as mentioned above.

I think that's probably the only way it could've been done with enough force to create that black eye.
