Here's what you do. In a loud voice, call "TIME!"

Call for the BoD memeber on duty. Again, in a loud voice(loud enough for all to hear) state that there is someone in the stands that either needs to tone it down or leave. Barring that the umpire will put the teams in the dugouts until such time that they feel the problem is resolved.

Umpires have no jurisdiction over the spectators, nor do the managers. But they do have responsibilty for the playing conditions on the field, including knucleheads yelling from the stands.
