These days it appears pro sports have zero tolerance for spotlight-hogging sports fans gone rogue. Monday night Philly PD Tasered a teenager who ran onto the field during a Phillies baseball game. Friday a drunken fan was zapped at The Players Championship golf tournament in Florida when he refused to stop heckling Tiger Woods, and possibly other players, near the 11th hole:

Travis Parmelee, 36, of Jacksonville, Fla., was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest, officials said.


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.


Messenger said Parmelee had been drinking.
