To be fair he did do a very threatening hand gesture.
To be fair he did have a very stupid hat on.
Honestly this didn't seem that bad. The dude himself hardly seemed fazed.

+1 for the second fatty getting pushed down the stairs at 1:25.
Also, this video is total Digg bait.
Menace to society averted.
Anyone know the context?
From the youtube page--
Here's the rundown of the video:
1:05 - a belligerent fan gets tazed by Oakland Police.
1:25 - another fan accidentally gets pushed down the stairs in the background.
1:42 - a foul ball lands in the vicinity.
In all fairness to the OPD: there's a ramp-up that you don't see on the tape. Even though the guy shows his ticket, I don't think that's his seat. He came over a little earlier, super drunk. He wasn't angry really, just obnoxious - hollering and making a scene. He was downing all these little bottles of vodka, and started harassing the kids behind him. A's security came to check him out when he started yelling profanities.
When security told him to cool it, he got really belligerent. Started using racial epithets at the guards, etc. They told him to leave. He refused. They called in the cops. You see the rest of it.
Whether or not the tazing was necessary/appropriate, people will certainly disagree. The one thing I can tell you for sure is that this guy had no intention of leaving calmly on his own.
do NOT fuck with OPD
I can't believe you guys taze him!

Shooting off your big fat mouth at a baseball game = possible death by tazer. Got it.
Actually it looks more like refusing to leave when the cops ask you to equals a tasering, you giant baby.
It's pretty depressing that random baseball watcher dude thinks "he was being belligerent" is sufficient justification for a tasing :(
Ah, the 'please comply' button.
wtf? i've never seen a cop at an a's game. i've wished for cops at a's games and seen people who could desperately use one or two but they're all a block down with dui checkpoints usually.
and he didn't get stomped by a's fans? lucky bastard.
