For The First Time, Police Use Taser Gun to Subdue Phillies Fan
KYW (CBS Radio Philadelphia) ^ | 05/04/2010 | Mark Abrams

Philadelphia police found a new way to tame an unruly fan at Citizens Bank Park during the Phillies game, they tased him.

It happened Monday night at the start of the eighth inning with the Phillies trailing the Cardinals.

A teenage fan waving a rally towel jumped the fence and ran out into center field with stadium security and a Philadelphia police officer in pursuit.

The police officer then fired a taser at the fan to bring him down

Nice little show for all the kiddies in attendance.

Should add up very instructively with the police reaction next time there’s one of those “flash wilding” incidents in the City of Love Among the Bros.

My favorite game disruption happened many years ago during a pro football game. Too far back to remember all of the details.

A hippie type ran on to the field carrying some banner, probably an anti-war protest. The fat security/police officers chased him for a while but never got close to catching him. Finally one of the linemen, who must have been 150 pounds heavier, took off and ran over the hippie. He didn't tackle him or push him down he just ran over him. When security finally caught up he was lying on the ground doing an imitation of a pretzel. Two security men took him by his arms and dragged him off of the field. Never heard about his condition.

Did they both have a clown suit on? I can just hear the ballpark organ requesting a “cheer” answer. Last game I was at, the insurance caveman ran out, but they caught him and they didn’t taser him.

Well, being a Phillies fan is somewhat offensive. Not sure if it rises to the level of tasing though.

I think that might have been Bill Curry when he was with the Baltimore Colts. You describe it differently than I recall it, but it still might be the same incident.

The cops instantly determined the boy was not a union member and then went after him.

Amazes me too. Big government and big police power for trifling offenses, and many Freepers love it. This was just a dumb kid.

You must be one of those stinkin' Mets fans (or Yankees?). If that's the case then I guess you are an authority on "offensive" :)

Actually, I’m an Indians fan. They’re neither offensive nor defensive.

Last year a fight in the parking lot lead to a fan getting killed.The Phillies organization,big beer and Philadelphia Police were blamed relentlessly by the lame Philadelphia media.Now some fool runs on the field and we have to show restraint and Philly haters come out from under their rocks.I do have to say Rizzo would be proud.This is the same day a maniac at a Target store slashed four people.

Maybe they should just post a sign at the stadium and request fans not run onto the field...seriously, how difficult is that?

It is common knowledge to all baseball fans that you don't run onto the field or you are subject to arrest. One should not have to post a sign for every possible offense, especially when the offense is common knowledge.

I’d suggest this for Eagle’s fans, but you need to have a central nervous system for tazers to be truly effective.

Story I heard last year when the Angels were in Philly.....when this ball park first opened, the Phillies decided to use the upper bullpen but changed to the lower one after the first week because they were taking so much abuse from their own fans!

>>Don’t be bitter just because we crushed the Dodgers twice.<<

McCord’s Dodgers couldn’t beat an old woman tied up with duct tape.

Remember: L.A. fans are arguably the most devastating in the world. If our teams don’t win WE DON’T CARE.

The opposite of Love is not Hate. The opposite of Love is Indifference.
