On April 19, 2007, Herron again was involved in a controversial incident during a game against the Revolution. Herron elbowed New England's Jay Heaps early in a nationally-televised game on MLS Primetime Thursday. He did not receive a card, because neither the referee, nor a linesman, saw the action. ESPN commentator Eric Wynalda called the foul, "the worst I've seen in a long time." He was suspended for four games and fined $3,000.
