Indiana cops taser unruly racing fans at Indy 500 (Video)

The action wasn’t restricted to the track at this weekend’s Indy 500. Plenty of stuff was going on in the infield and surrounding party areas as well. And some if it was crazy.

This video captured by some random dude shows what went down when a pair of racing fans ran afoul of a couple of seriously wound-up Indiana cops. Not amused by the antics of the probably extremely inebriated punks, the cops laid some old-fashioned non-lethal justice on those guys’ butts.

Warning: NSFW (language, violence, hideous redneck attire, wanton environmental destruction)

This video demonstrates how quickly drunken tomfoolery can escalate into mayhem. What else could the cops do but whip out the tasers?

You can’t let a situation like that get any worse otherwise you could have a full-on drunken redneck stampede on your hands. And then there’s really nothing you can do except fall to the ground, cover your head and pray to whatever God you believe in.

The main thing I learned from that video though is that I never ever want to go to the Indy 500. That looks like just about the worst environment in the world. Between the drunk idiots, the garbage everywhere, the fumes you are no doubt inhaling from all the race cars, the tightly-wound taser-armed cops.

No thanks. I’ll stick to Mario Kart. That’s as close as I want to get to an authentic racing experience.
