Philly’s Taser-Boy Headed to Penn State
Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank Ballpark, something more unusual than the Phillies losing to the Cardinals took place. 17 year-old Steve Consalvi decided it would be a good idea to run out onto the field, just for the heck of it. That trip ended poorly for him when a Philadelphia police officer decided to go all University of Florida on his ass and Tasered him in shallow left field.
Besides being immensely humorous, you’re probably asking why this website is covering this. The answer is because Mr. Consalvi is “a real good student, heading to Penn State,” according to his father. So if you’ve ever wondered what a taser feels like, you can ask him in person.
During yesterday’s Phillies game, another fan also ran out onto the field, but was not Tasered.
