    Reds fan is tasered and tackled by police after storming the field

    Can't believe this wasn't on Plays of the Day, even video!

    If you can't beat 'em, tase 'em.


    That was the lesson for Cincinnati police on Tuesday night, when an over-enthusiastic Reds fan stormed the field and eluded cops before executing a flawless back flip in front of one helpless officer.

    I’ve often wondered what the conversation is before a fan does this. I think I’d had to be pretty darned overserved to think this is a good idea.
    I learn by going where I have to go.

    He should get the cop to sign a copy of that still shot and hang it in his basement someday.

    The day is coming when it will be so common that they'll get booed off the field by the players.

    Gonna be that guy and say it looks like unnecessary use of the Taser.
    The guys we've had for the most part have been serviceable at this level.

    He got really really close to a player, and nearly kicked another player doing the backflip.

    I'd have used a bazooka. Drunk idiots at the park is why I don't go anymore.
    All my posts are my opinion - just like yours are. If I forget to state it and you're too dense to see the obvious, look here!

    Re: Reds fan is tasered and tackled by police after storming the field

    It’s a slightly gray area because generally I think as security your job is to assume the worst when someone runs onto the field/court out of an abundance of caution, but it does seem like you could have just tackled/wrestled him down while he’s doing backflips and all.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Did he do more than one flip? I thought only person near him in flip on video was the cop.
