Watch: 17-Year-Old Phillies Fan Tasered for Running on Field


The 1200-volt taser was used on a Phillies fan who ran on the field during last night's game in Philadelphia.

The Inquirer reports: "Steve Consalvi, 17, is a senior at Boyertown High and 'a real good student, heading to Penn State,' according to his father, Wayne, 45, who owns Consalvi Auto Repair in Pottstown. Steve even called from the park last night, asking for permission to run on the field, as the Phillies hosted the St. Louis Cardinals, the elder Consalvi said. 'He said, 'Dad, can I run on the field? I said, 'I don't think you should, son.'' 'This would be a once in a lifetime experience!' the son said."

  1. Fuck! Being human is SO embarrassing sometimes.
    A taser?! Really?! ... What a needed course of action, lazy cop... Look at the fat ass cop who did it! He couldn't chase tail if he wanted to.

  2. I'd say he got exactly what he deserved.

  3. Yep, lazy fat cop took the cruel way out.

  4. This is fucking sickening and horrifying! He should have been reprimanded, yes. But to taser this kid is too much.

  5. Wrong to run onto the field (WTF is up with straight people?)? Yes.

    Tasered? Yikes! I had no idea you could Tase a Bitch from that far away. I'm going to stay even further away from my psycho ex.

  6. Hey, he had a handgun and could have used that instead.

  7. Kid did something crazy and stupid and got what he deserved.

    Who knows whether he might have been carrying a concealed weapon?

    In these days of high security alertness, you can't be too safe.

  8. I'm so sick of seeing excessive force used as a method to preempt others from doing the same. We have to turn everything into a lesson instead of actually giving the one person an reasonable punishment--it's not fair.

  9. That fat ass security guy will get his...

  10. Typical heterosexual male mischief making. He got what was coming to him.

  11. It's America.......I'm surprised he wasn't shot and killed.....stupid psycho country

  12. If the security wasn't so fat and lazy, he could have just tackled the kid. Why is it that the police force is allowed to use a Taser on civilians as a "reasonable use of non-life threatening force" but if someone shoots one at police it's considered attempted murder?

    Honestly, who is the most retarded regular commenter at this site? It's a toss-up between bisexual rights crusader/Lady Gaga hater Jason and homosexual fascist Bill.

  14. Sounds like we need to push for taser laws in our books.

  15. "I don't think you should, son." are you for real?

    My dad would have said, "Dont you dare! Are you drunk? I hear booze on your voice! Come home now!"

    idiots. This is what's wrong with these kids.

  16. you can almost see the donuts slowing the fat ass american rent-a-cop down.

    this once great country is getting more like the old Soviet Union every day.

    any tiny nothing event, a teenager on a ball field is met with absurdly over reactive force.

    this event is porn to someone like dick cheney

  17. Totally not OK. At all. Tasers should be banned except when protecting public safety. I hear too many stories of douchey college guys getting tased for no reason other than the cops' incompetence. I hate douches, but I hate being afraid of the police a LOT more.

    Posted by: Chip | May 4, 2010 1:22:26 PM

  18. looks legit to me. If the kid got tackled to the ground and hurt himself people would be complaining about that too. Saying the cop is fat and slow is stupid. What if usain bolt or someone fast like him was out there? Should they just let the guy run around for an hour? The kid is fine. People should be happy society is coming up with quick, non-lethal weapons that can solve a problem quickly like this.

  19. I swear that straight cops get a hard-on from using taser guns!

    Posted by: James Stone | May 4, 2010 1:25:45 PM

  20. and his father said, "I don't think you should, son.'' What kind of crap parenting is that?

    Posted by: Alan | May 4, 2010 1:26:19 PM

  21. Eh, got what he deserved. What did he think was going to happen? Why should anyone be forced to expend energy chasing the punk around when he was clearly in the wrong?

    Posted by: Jack | May 4, 2010 1:27:37 PM

  22. Next time, kid, listen to your Dad, okay?

    Just sayin'. :)

    Posted by: Allen | May 4, 2010 1:30:03 PM

  23. I can't stop laughing, the kids fine he just got a little shock after wasting everyones time, no biggie. kid ran around, kid got tazed, kid got up, life goes on. I love tasers! There should be a sport that replaces paint-ball with tasers, it would be my favorite thing to watch besides Rupauls Drag Race...and if they could taser the contestants on that show I would love it even more!

  24. I'm amazed that anyone can condone this stuff. Just because this guy was interupting the organised, consumer packaged and predictable monotony of yet another event designed to keep the masses occupied means you have to down him?......get real. I doubt he would have run around for and hour.....normally they do a lap and then scramble back to their seat while the crowd booos them if they take up too much time.

  25. Are some of you living in a cave?

    In today's climate of violence and various acts of terrorism you CANNOT have a breach of security like some crazy fan running onto the playing field at a major event! Players have been assaulted, stabbed, etc...

    The cop (his weight is irrelevant) was completely justified in doing what he did.
    The kid is an IDIOT!!!
