Fan Gets Tased By Cops At Athletics Game
Total Pro Sports – Tasers at a baseball game may not be such a bad idea. I can’t think of a better way to control the fans in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Maybe the Athletics and Oakland police are on to something here.
During a ball game against the Texas Rangers last night at the Coliseum, one fan was apparently too much for police and security to handle. After several attempts to escort the man away from his seat, police cleared the area and gave him a few electric shocks to soften him up (1:05 mark). If that wasn’t enough to entertain the surrounding fans, there was more to come.
Just when it seemed as though they had things under control, one fan who was making his way up the stairs towards the scene was pushed back down (1:25 mark), and then as he argued with security, a foul ball came flying in and landed on top of the distracted crowd (1:42 mark).
There is no shortage of action in the Oakland crowd these days. That is good news, especially when you consider the lack of excitement being produced on the field.
