Phillies Fan Tasered During Baseball Game
Last night, one Philadelphia Phillies fanís night went from real exciting to real painful in only a couple seconds.
The Phillies fan, a 17 year old boy, jumped over the wall onto the field during a baseball game, and proceeded to run around the outfield. He was being chased by staff, players, and police. When he refused to stop, however, a police officer shot the Phillies fan with his taser.
This event has caused mixed emotions among fans and onlookers. Many people maintain that the fan should not have been on the field, and should have stopped for police, and therefor deserved to be tasered. Meanwhile, others say that he was only 17, and was completely surrounded, and that using a taser was uncalled for and too aggressive.
The police officer that tasered the Phillies fan is currently being investigated to determine whether or not he used excessive force.
The unnamed 17 year old Phillies fan will face charges for the incident.
