34-year-old Thomas Betz climbed out of the Citizens Bank Park stands at a crucial point in the game Phils-Cards game last night.
Cole Hamels was about to deliver his first pitch of the ninth inning in a 1-0 game when Betz hopped the fence in left field and ran along the warning track, waving his arms.
"Aww, man. What an idiot," said Phils color guy Chris Wheeler. "Just, that's just an idiot to do that in a game this important, at this point, with Hamels all pumped up. What a dope."
Security did not use a Taser to apprehend Betz, despite boos and chants of "Tase him, Tase him" from the sellout crowd. Security simply surrounded Betz, and he gave himself up without incident.
Betz now faces charges of defiant trespass, disorderly conduct, disrupting a meeting, criminal mischief and possession of marijuana, according to police. He was still being held on Wednesday morning.
Can he be tased after-the-fact...???
