Golf Fan Tasered at Players

Golf fan being tasered

A golf fan attending the second round of the 2010 Player’s Championship on Friday was subdued by a taser after he resisted arrest by police officers. The fan was heckling various players on the 11th hole, including Tiger Woods, and ignored several warnings from officers to stop. However, he became more belligerent and when he tried to escape the officers, he was touched with the stun gun. The fan, who was drunk at the time, has been charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence. This is the second sports incident of the week involving a taser. At the Philadelphia Phillies game on Monday, a fan was tasered after running onto the field during a game. A taser disrupts voluntary control of muscles, causing involuntary muscle contractions. The tasered person will almost always immediately fall to the ground.
