Police Taser Phillies Fan For Field Invasion

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Joe Blanton returned to the baseball team’s rotation Monday—and didn’t make a fool of himself. (Philadelphia lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3). But someone did. ABC News reports that a bro’ was Tased in the City of Brotherly Love. “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. The teams says it’s the first time a Taser has been used by police to apprehend a spectator who ran onto the field.” TTAG says where’s the video guys? The media outlet’s strap-line: “ABC 2 Works For You.” Not in this case it doesn’t. The TV’s channel’s image—a set of feet next to the bag—reveals the station’s collusion and cowardice. ESPN isn’t showing the clip, either. Did the team’s official site mention the incident? Ha. Thank God for YouTube.
