Video: Oakland A's fan takes on 3 cops, gets TASERed

The angered man threw several punches and was promptly removed from the game as the crowd heckled

OAKLAND — Cell phone video taken at Saturday night’s Oakland Athletics game shows a rowdy fan fighting off three officers as they attempt to arrest him.

It’s not clear what started the confrontation, and the video doesn’t start until officers are arriving on the scene and attempting to subdue a visibly angry man.

Officers and stadium security attempt to calm the man — who has not been identified — down, as another man in the crowd can be heard repeatedly yelling “Tase him!”

The man threw several punches at officers, overtaking them at some points, until one officer deployed a TASER to his back and placed him under arrest.
