Just Another Relaxing Night at the Ballpark with the Athletics, Rangers and Tasers

↵Tempers didn't just heat up in the clubhouse last night. No, this gentleman, we'll call him Belligerent Santa, was clearly not happy about something going on at the A's game last night. (A YouTube commenter who claims to have been sitting near where the incident took place said it was a loud Texas fan who was yelling inappropriately and got angry when he was asked to quiet down. Judging from how few people were around him, that doesn't really sound like much of a stretch.) After what seemed like a decent amount of time trying to reason with Belligerent Santa, the jig was up, and like that scene from The Hangover, they had to unleash the full power of the Taser.

↵The high point of the video is obviously when he puts his thumb on his nose and does that thing 7-year-olds do where they wiggle their fingers. That'll show 'em! ↵

↵A quick news search didn't turn up anything on the incident, so perhaps it will live in this isolated YouTube video and what I'm guessing was a healthy bump on the back of the guy's head from his fall. Oh, and if you care, the A's won 6-0. ↵
