Minor League Fan Tasered After Mildly Obnoxious Comments And Mild Resistance

So there you are with your lovely spot for a night at the ballpark with the Daytona Cubs and the Fort Myers Miracle. Some guy is probably a little bit overserved -- because no one is this genuinely excited at a Class A game -- so you keep the camera rolling. Then, the Taser comes out. (Warning: Some NSFW language towards the end.) ↵

↵The user account on YouTube, SuperRandomFunnyVidz, uploaded an original video that was almost 10 minutes in length (which you can see after the jump). The end of that video is what you see above. An unidentified male, who spends the better part of the longer video being loud and shouting a lot of nonsensical stuff -- but not really hurting anyone -- winds up getting the business end of a Taser. ↵

↵Did we learn nothing from the Phillies incident? In that case, there was at least an argument to be made about general public safety. This guy's great crime appeared to be trying to yank his arm away from one of the two people trying to secure him. Surely, the escalation protocols of security at a Class A ballpark have a step somewhere between "grab arm with force" and "Taser," right? ↵

↵A cursory Google search turned up no information on the incident, but hopefully the rowdy fan is OK. As for when this incident occurred, the two teams mentioned above played a recent series from July 14-17. (If you have any other information, hit us at blogtips at sportingnews.com.) Check out the full video of the night, which includes more of this fan, after the jump. ↵
