Apparently this happened last night (May 3, 2010) during the Philadelphia Phillies vs. St. Louis Cardinals game at Citizens Bank Park. A fan waving a rally towel ran into outfield and managed to avoid security until a cop whips out a Taser and nails the guy. Remember the old days when they would just chase you around for awhile until you got tired . . . or sober? Here’s more on the story from Chicago Breaking Sports (Be sure to vote in our poll at right):
The Philadelphia Phillies are looking into further use of Taser guns after a police officer shocked a teenage fan who ran onto the field Monday. The fan hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield, eluding two security officers late in the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. One officer used a Taser and the fan went down in a heap. The Phillies say the police department is investigating the matter and discussing with the team whether it’s appropriate use of force under similar circumstances.
