Idiot Giants Fan Heckles, Falls Over Railing, Gets Tased By Security
Just another item on my list of "Reasons I Have No Desire To Go To A Football Game".
NJ.com got the video of the fans behaving badly at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, home of the 49ers. Witnesses say the fans were giving Giants players the finger and cursing loudly; security asked them to stop, but they didn't. When security tried to remove them from their seats, things became physical.
At around :35 in the video, you can see the fan start to tumble over the railing. It's unclear if he had a poorly-thought-out plan to escape, or if security was trying to lower him down to field level, but regardless, he fell and fell hard. A number of officers pounced, threw some punches, and seemed to hit him with a taser as well.
The fan's girlfriend was also ejected.
I have literally no urge to go to a football game. If my options are sitting around a throng of drunken idiots, screaming at players, fighting each other, throwing beer at people who root for the other team OR sitting in my living room, on my couch, with easy access to food and a bathroom, I don't think it's much of a debate.
