Kyle Scott - June 24, 2010

Taser

Steve Consalvi, the 17 year old who ran on the field and got tased, had his court date today.  He received probation, 80 hours of community service, and must pass a drug test and then his record will be expunged.

And, oh yeah, he got his 15 minutes (now 16) of fame too.

My thoughts on the boy getting tazed are very simple, don't run on baseball field, don't get tazed.  

You can sit here and debate whether or not he should of been tazed, should he have been left alone to tire himself out, or should of been taken down old school like Goldberg used to do on WCW Nitro… via spear.  The bottom line is that the Officer that was on duty has one job, that's to protect people, and protect himself.  He did that, and did nothing wrong.

Parenting FAIL: Tased Fan Identified, called Dad

Kyle Scott - May 4, 2010

Steve consalvi

According to Philly.com, the tasered fan at last night's Phillies game was Steve Consalvi, a 17 year senior at Boyertown High School, heading to Penn State next Fall.

He wasn't drinking.  His father said he was a "good student", and that he even called to ask if he could run onto the field before doing so.  Umm, parenting FAIL.

Consalvi told his Dad it would be "a once in a lifetime experience."  No kidding.  This is the first time Philadelphia Police have ever tasered a fan on the field.  And he's getting his 15 minutes of fame out of it too.  Well played, Steve.

According to Facebook, Consalvi likes "going to Phillies games."  Ironic.

All joking aside, the punishment didn't fit the crime here.  As awesome as it was to see wannabe Paul Blart chase after Consalvi, he was slowing down and surrounded by security.  No need to taze, bro.
