Another Phillies Fan Runs Onto The Field, But No Taser?

thomas betz no taserThanks to 17-year-old Steve Consalvi, it appears as though running onto the field at Citizens Bank Park in an attempt to get tased by security has become the cool thing to do in Philadelphia.  His actions on Monday night were enough to inspire 32-year-old Thomas Betz to do the same during the ninth inning of a 1-0 game last night, in an attempt to get some electronic juices flowing through his body.

Instead, the fat disc jockey from Warminster, Pa. was greeted with boos from the Phillies fans, who were calling for the taser but did not have their calls answered.  Thomas was eventually escorted off the field (sans tasing) and charged with defiant trespass, disorderly conduct and narcotics possession.

Perhaps the only thing dumber than running onto the field in an attempt to get yourself tased is doing so with drugs in the pockets of your stupid looking shorts.

And so how was Thomas able to avoid a shock from the same taser gun that treated Steve to a couple thousand volts just one night earlier?  It probably has something to do with the fact that he is fat and ran out of breath only a few seconds into his moment of glory, leaving him no choice but to walk directly into the arms of security.

Between the narcotics possession and his incredibly poor fitness level, I think it is fair to say that Mr. Betz didn’t really think this one through.
