Got him - Idiot gets tasered after running onto baseball pitch - video

An investigation has been launched after a police officer shot a teenage baseball fan with a Taser gun for running onto the pitch during a game in America.

he fan, wearing a baseball cap, red T-shirt and khaki shorts, dropped in a heap after he was blasted with the weapon during a Philadelphia Phillies game.

The 17-year-old pitch invader had hurdled a fence and was running rings around two security officers before being abruptly felled.

The wild scene, at the game against the St Louis Cardinals, was witnessed by more than 44,000 spectators.

One of them, Chuck Walker, from Pitman, New Jersey, captured the whole drama on video.
Several Phillies players placed gloves over their faces and appeared to be stifling laughter before the teenager was shot.

Police spokesman Lt Frank Vanore told The Philadelphia Inquirer that internal affairs chiefs will investigate whether the firing "was proper use of the equipment".

The teams said it was the first time a Taser had been used by police to apprehend a spectator.

One fan, who saw the incident, said: "Best part of last nights game. If that kid is dumb enough to run out on the field, he deserved to be tasered."

Phillies spokeswoman Bonnie Clark said: "The Police Department is investigating this matter and the Phillies are discussing with them whether in future situations this is an appropriate use of force under these circumstances."

The fan will be charged with criminal trespass and related offenses, Clark said.

The Phillies did not release his name because he is a juvenile (thats an understatement).
