The fan, wearing a baseball cap, red T-shirt and khaki shorts, hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield at Citizens Bank Park, eluding two security officers in the bottom of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals.

One officer used a Taser and the fan went down in a heap.

17 years old? They should check his blood alcohol level and see if they were serving him beer at the stadium. He got what he deserved and the response was appropriate. These days who knows whether a “fan” is out on the field to do harm to a player or not?

So true. After all, the media has spent the past weekend warning us of balding middle aged white guys placing bombs into SUVs in Tinmes Square (wonder how much play the fact that the arrested perp was a Muzzie).

By the way Tastycake moved today to their new offices by the Navy Shipyard.

Saw the Tastycake Parade this morning on the tv. They were throwing tastycakes from the trucks for anyone walking by.

Disturbing due to the Epic Beard Man’s behavior or the police behavior?

Same video:

That guy has some history with causing problems and mental issues. Not saying the cops weren’t heavy handed but I suspect he’s not partially at fault.

A more well known video of him:

Whether it’s for him or someone he encounters, be ready to call the Amberlamps ;)

Yep, that would have made his hair stand on end...all over.

I was watching one of the early morning news shows (Fox?) and someone made a crack that the photo could have come from Arizona. ;-)

The cops would have risked injury pulling that guy out of there. I used to work stadium bouncer. Sometimes you can’t help doing things like that to unruly fans. I side with the cops.

How refreshing? Mom, bless her heart, apologizes for the kid, rather than filing a lawsuit.

God bless her for being a stand-up parent. While it wasn’t her fault, I have to admit that I am impressed that she puts the responsibility on her own knucklehead.

How uncommon!

That’s what happens why they hire overweight cops that can’t even keep up kids.

Yes thank God there was a police officer on hand to save us and pampered million dollar athletes! Look there is a crippled child in a wheelchair, he could be dangerous. Sounds like the TSA thought process.

BF - They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Because they are millionaire athletes they should not be protected? I don’t recall anything about a “dangerous” child in a wheelchair. You make absolutely no sense...

10 millionaire athletes (on the field, 30 more on the bench, each could have a baseball bat) need protection from 1 kid?

Are they cowards?
