Golf Fan Tasered for Heckling at The Players Championship

Earlier this week we had a fan at a Phillies game tasered by cops as he ran onto the field. On Friday we had a member of the Gallery at The Players Championship who may have had a little too much to drink, got rowdy and then refused to comply with marshals and cops who wanted him to settle down. You know what that means? it’s a Taserin’!

This seems to be an interesting new trend in sports and one that might finally have an impact on unruly fans the world over. Then again, we’ve seen some soccer fans who a taser would only serve to wake them up enough to continue on their rampage.

Travis Parmelee, 36, was shocked with a Taser and arrested after becoming belligerent with hole marshals and St. Johns County sheriff’s deputies. He was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence.  The PGA Tour released a statement reiterating its position of not tolerating any unruly behavior at any tournament: “The Tour’s position is and has always been that anything that disrupts the competition or the enjoyment of our fans will be dealt with accordingly, as was the case today.”  Capt. Dave Messenger of the Sheriff’s Office said marshals on hole No. 11 called police around 5 p.m. to deal with a man who was being uncooperative and argumentative. Messenger said the suspect would not calm down and became even more belligerent when talking with police officers. When police tried to arrest the suspect, he resisted and officers were forced to Tase him to subdue him, Messenger said.
