Tiger Woods wasn’t the only one that fell on his face this weekend. Travis Parmalee, 36, joined the list of Tasees In Sport after heckling Woods on the 11th hole of the Players’ Championship. The gift of Tiger Woods keeps on giving.
Security guards at the Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., tournament told Parmelee to stop yelling several times before calling the sheriff, who dispatched deputies to make an arrest.
Capt. Dave Messenger said officers attempted to calm Parmelee down, but he became more combative. When they tried to take Parmelee into custody, he resisted – and was Tasered once. –NY Daily News, via DaveMattewsBandSpin.
You might want to sit down for this next part. Oh, wait. You’re already sitting down. Anyway…
Messenger said Parmelee had been drinking.
Woods would later withdraw from the tournament, citing neck pain.
Fans that are acting belligerently, with obviously no intention other than to piss off everyone around them, should be tased, in my opinion. But I’m afraid that the act of tasing is going to catch on. Security personnel everywhere will be dying to get a taste, and I can’t blame them. I want to tase somebody right now. It looks like fun. I plan to do that to every jackass that yells “Get in the hole!” after each players’ shot. Because those bastards all have it coming.
