Given that the fans cheered him, he must have been quite annoying.  Like to think security would not need the ump's help with this though

Bob Davidson is an asshole of the highest order. I'm sure the fan was obnoxious, but anyone having to suffer through a full game of Dickbag Bobby behind the plate would be 1.) driven to drinking and 2.) tempted to yell at him.

You have been known to yell at umpires without drinking.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

I thought he meant that umpires drink and yell at Mark. 

I've tried to pitch a time or two, and once took a page from Jim Bouton and yelled at an umpire, after throwing a couple of pitches in the same spot that were called a ball:  "Dammit...I've got to have that pitch!"
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.
