Daniel sits down with the young man who was tased at a baseball game to find out what made him jump onto the Phillies' field on dollar dog night. (5:59)

>> ALL RIGHT, STEVEN, I GOT US

THIS NICE SEEDY HOTEL ROOM

FOR THE NEXT 2 1/2 HOURS

SO YOU CAN UNWIND.

WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME

WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY?

>> A COUPLE FRIENDS AND I

WERE GOING TO A PHILLIES GAME,

AND IT WAS DOLLAR DOG NIGHT.

>> DOLLAR DOG NIGHT?

>> YES, IT WAS.

>> HOW MANY HOT DOGS

DID YOU PUT AWAY AT THAT GAME?

>> I HAD A DECENT AMOUNT.

I'D SAY PROBABLY FIVE.

>> HOLD ON, YOU HAD

FIVE HOT DOGS IN YOU,

AND YOU STILL

RAN LIKE THE WIND.

THAT'S INCREDIBLE.

YOU WOULDN'T THINK FIVE HOT DOGS

DEEP THAT YOU COULD BE OUT THERE

DODGING PEOPLE.

WERE YOU SITTING IN YOUR

ASSIGNED SEATS?

>> YES.

IT WAS RIGHT BY THE FOUL POLE.

SO WE WERE SITTING THERE,

HAVING A GOOD OLD TIME,

WATCHING THE GAME.

I MENTIONED THE FACT

THAT I WANTED TO RUN ON

THE PHILLIES FIELD.

>> DID YOUR DAD TELL YOU

NOT TO DO THIS?

>> I CALLED HIM, ACTUALLY.

>> YOU CALLED HIM BEFORE

YOU RAN ON THE FIELD?

>> YES.

>> AND WHAT DID HE SAY?

>> HE SAID, "I DON'T BELIEVE

THAT'S A GOOD IDEA, SON."

>> DID YOU HANG UP

THE PHONE GOING,

"WELL, HE DOESN'T KNOW

WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT."

AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED?

>> AS THE GAME WENT ON,

WE KEPT TALKING ABOUT IT,

AND WE WERE SCOPING OUT

SOME AREAS WHERE WE COULD

RUN ON THE FIELD.

TOP OF THE EIGHTH INNING CAME,

SAW MY OPENING,

JUMPED ON THAT FIELD

AND TOOK OFF.

I STARTED RUNNING AROUND

THE FIELD.

RIGHT WHEN I GOT TO ABOUT

CENTERFIELD, I LOOKED AROUND

AND JUST SAW THAT SECURITY

GUARDS WERE GETTING

ON THE FIELD.

AND I CONTINUED RUNNING AROUND,

DODGING THEM.

AND THEN THAT MOMENT CAME.

I LOOK BACK, AND I SEE A

SECURITY GUARD POINTING A GUN

AT ME WITH A GREEN TIP ON IT.

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS.

>> SO DID YOU GET NERVOUS?

>> OH, WELL, I WAS SCARED

THE WHOLE TIME.

DECIDED TO CALL IT QUITS.

ATTEMPTED TO DIVE ON THE FIELD

AND THEN, THERE IT WAS,

THE BOLT OF ELECTRICITY.

>> SO YOU HAD GIVEN UP.

>> YES.

>> BEFORE YOU WERE EVEN SHOT.

>> THAT IS CORRECT.

>> WHAT DID IT FEEL LIKE

TO GET TASED?

>> DIDN'T HURT TOO MUCH 'CAUSE

MY ADRENALINE WAS PUMPING A LOT,

BUT IT WAS A BIG SHOCK

TO THE WHOLE BODY.

>> HOW LONG DID IT LAST?

>> A COUPLE SECONDS, I'D SAY.

>> SO THEN YOU WENT

TO THE HOSPITAL?

>> YES.

>> BY AMBULANCE?

>> BY ONE OF THOSE

POLICE WAGONS.

>> WERE YOU HANDCUFFED?

>> YEP.

>> AT THIS POINT, WERE YOU LIKE,

"THIS WAS A HORRIBLE IDEA,"

OR WERE YOU STILL LIKE,

"AH, I'M GLAD I DID IT"?

>> I WAS JUST IN SHOCK

THAT EVERYTHING WENT DOWN.

I ACTUALLY GOT TASERED.

>> WHAT DID YOU THINK

WAS GONNA HAPPEN

WHEN YOU RAN ON THE FIELD?

>> I REALLY DIDN'T HAVE

ANY CLUE.

I JUST WANTED

TO GET OUT THERE.

>> BUT YOU KNEW YOU'D GET

ARRESTED, RIGHT?

>> YES, I KNEW SOMETHING

LIKE THAT WAS GONNA COME.

>> DID YOU THINK THAT THERE WAS

ANY SCENARIO WHERE YOU WOULDN'T

GET CAUGHT AND YOU COULD

ACTUALLY RUN BACK

AND GET BACK IN YOUR SEAT

AND MAYBE GET ONE MORE DOG

IN YOU?

>> THAT WOULD'VE BEEN

PRETTY COOL.

>> HAD YOU BEEN DRINKING?

>> NO, NOT AT ALL.

>> THAT WAS PROBABLY

WHY IT TOOK SEVEN OFFICERS

AND A TASER TO BRING YOU DOWN.

>> YEAH.

>> DID YOU EVER GET TO MEET

THE GUY THAT ACTUALLY TASED YOU?

>> YES.

>> HE WASN'T, THOUGH--

HE WASN'T APOLOGETIC.

>> NO.

>> HE DIDN'T FEEL BAD FOR WHAT

HE DID.

>> I GUESS NOT, NO.

>> BECAUSE HE COULDN'T CATCH

A HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR.

SEE, THAT'S MY THEORY.

COPS ARE GETTING LAZY

BECAUSE OF THE TASER.

THEY'RE LIKE, "OH,

IT'S NOT KILLING PEOPLE, SO

LET'S JUST--QUICK ON THE DRAW.

LET'S PULL IT OUT A BUNCH."

I DON'T THINK THAT THEY'RE

AS FEARFUL.

DID HE ASK IF YOU

HAD A HEART CONDITION

BEFORE HE TASED YOU?

>> NO.

>> SO THIS IS

THE SHIRT YOU WORE?

>> YES, IT'S ACTUALLY

A BLOODSTAIN

OF WHERE I'VE GOT SHOT.

>> AND YOU DIDN'T HAVE

A TIDE STICK ON YOU?

>> NO.

>> TIDE STICKS.

NOW, THAT'S A SOLID PRODUCT.

[laughs]

WERE YOU BEHIND BARS EVER?

>> UH, ONCE I GOT TO THE JAIL,

I WAS HELD IN THEIR

HOLDING CELL FOR--

>> DID ANYONE TRY TO HAVE SEX

WITH YOU IN THERE?

>> NO, I WAS BY MYSELF.

>> [sighs]

THAT STINKS.

ARE YOU BANNED FROM GOING

TO BASEBALL GAMES?

>> I AM NOT.

>> SO YOU'RE ALLOWED TO GO

TO A PHILLIES GAME?

>> YES.

I'VE ALREADY BEEN TO ONE.

>> DID YOU EVEN CONSIDER

STORMING THE FIELD AGAIN

TO LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY

CAN'T BREAK YOUR SPIRIT?

>> I DID NOT.

>> DO YOU THINK THE OFFICERS

USED CRUEL AND UNUSUAL

PUNISHMENT?

>> YES.

WITH A TASER, YES.

>> YOU THINK THEY COULD HAVE

JUST CAUGHT YOU EVENTUALLY?

>> IN A WAY, YEAH.

>> DID PEOPLE BOO

WHEN THEY SHOT?

>> I BELIEVE SO, YES.

>> HOW LONG WERE YOU RUNNING

BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY TASED YOU?

HOW LONG DO YOU THINK YOU WERE

ACTUALLY OUT THERE ON THE FIELD?

>> I DON'T KNOW.

IT FELT LIKE A LONG TIME TO ME.

>> DO YOU THINK HAD YOU NOT

DIVED THAT THEY WOULD'VE FIRED

AND MISSED POSSIBLY?

>> I ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY DID

MISS ALREADY, THEN THEY FIRED

THEIR SECOND SHOT AND HIT ME.

>> DID THE PHILLIES ORGANIZATION

GIVE YOU ANY TYPE

OF COMPENSATION?

>> NO.

>> NO.

THEY DIDN'T WANT TO

REWARD YOU FOR...

IT'S ALL BECAUSE ONE FAN

IN FUCKING TENNIS

STABBED SOME CHICK

IN THE BACK OF THE NECK

THAT NONE OF US

ARE ALLOWED TO ACT LIKE FOOLS.

AND THEN THERE WAS THAT ONE

IN KANSAS CITY WHERE THAT

FATHER-SON TEAM BEAT THE SHIT

OUT OF THE OLD MAN.

THAT WASN'T GOOD EITHER.

OKAY, SO THERE'S A COUPLE CASES

WHERE IT BACKFIRED,

BUT FOR THE MOST PART,

IT'S JUST GOOD FUN.

>> MM-HMM.

>> WERE YOU SURPRISED

THAT THE STADIUM COPS

WOULD TASE A WHITE KID?

>> YES.

>> IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS,

IT'S REALLY NOT THAT SERIOUS.

>> YES.

>> WHAT HAPPENED IS UNFORTUNATE.

>> MM-HMM.

>> I WOULD SAY UNNECESSARY.

BUT, I MEAN, LISTEN, IT'S NOT

LIKE YOU KNOCKED UP SOME CHICK

IN YOUR HIGH SCHOOL.

YOU'RE NOT ADDICTED TO DRUGS

THAT I KNOW OF.

ARE YOU ADDICTED TO DRUGS?

>> NO, I'M NOT.

>> WHAT WERE THE LEGAL

RAMIFICATIONS

AFTER THIS HAPPENED?

>> I GOT SIX MONTHS PROBATION

AND THEN 80 HOURS

COMMUNITY SERVICE.

>> DID YOU HAVE TO CHECK IN

WITH YOUR PROBATION OFFICER?

>> I ACTUALLY DID NOT, NO.

>> OH, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

KIND OF NEAT, TO BE IN

HIGH SCHOOL AND BE LIKE,

"HOLD ON."

>> YEAH.

>> "I GOT TO CHECK IN WITH

MY PROBATION OFFICER BEFORE

I TAKE YOU OUT

AND ATTEMPT TO FINGER YOU."

>> [chuckles]

>> SEEMS LIKE THAT WOULD BE

KIND OF NEAT.

NOW, YOU'RE PROBABLY

WONDERING WHY I BROUGHT YOU

TO THIS SCABIES MOTEL.

IT'S BECAUSE I GOT YOU

WHAT EVERY JUST-RELEASED CONVICT

ALWAYS WANTS--

A NIGHT OF GUILT-FREE SEX

WITH A BEAUTIFUL PROSTITUTE.

>> HELLO.

>> MMM!

HELLO.

>> SO, WHO'S THE LUCKY FELLA?

>> I WISH IT WAS ME,

BUT IT'S MY FRIEND OVER HERE.

>> NO, THANK YOU.

>> NO, NO, NO.

NO, DON'T YOU THANK ME.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM.

EXPLORE EACH OTHER'S BODIES.

HE'S BEEN IN THE CLINKER

FOR ABOUT EIGHT HOURS.

OKAY?

AND GUESS WHAT, STEVEN.

I HAD HER LAST WEEK.

SHE'S CLEAN.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A CONDOM.
