Phillies’ Security Doesn’t Mess Around

Note to self and all loyal readers: if you’re ambition is to some day rush the field at a sporting event — and accept spending the night in jail to make 40,000 people cheer for you — don’t do it at a Philadelphia Phillies game. A fan had to learn that the hard way last night after he ran onto the field at Citizens Bank Park during the Phillies-Cardinals game. I’ve seen many fans run on to the field in my day — including in-person — and never seen anyone get taken down by a Taser. Apparently, this 17-year-old kid was just too fast for security and they got tired of messing around. Check out this video of a fan being Tasered after running onto the field at a Phillies game.

    In your face, in your faaaaace!!!! Why doesn’t that security guard try getting in shape, that way he might not have to use the taser. It’s not like he was chasing around Shane Victorino out there. Maybe try dropping a few lbs next time.

    That’s what I’m thinking. I’ve never seen this situation come up before because I’ve never seen the security guard/team not be able to catch someone who runs on the field. I love how some of the stuff I’ve read says “you never know when these people could be dangerous or – even worse – armed.” It was the same situation that happens all the time, someone looking for attention. The Taser came into play because the security guard is lazy.
