Craziness at an A's Game - Tasers, Foul Balls and more (WOW!)

This might be the craziest 3 minute sequence from a baseball game that has ever been caught on film.  Here's the quick breakdown:

1:05 - A belligerent fan gets tazed by Oakland Police
1:25 - Another fan accidentally gets pushed down the stairs in the background
1:42 - A foul ball lands in the vicinty.

Someone else that was there left a comment to give this situation a little more context:

I was sitting about 5 rows in front of him and he was actually a Texas fan and he kept yelling obnoxiously. The usher who had been very nice went over and made a joke. And dude flipped out screaming and swearing saying get outta my fing face and calling him the n word. They called security and he was still screaming and swearing. So the police came and while they were trying to put handcuffs on him he kept trying to swing at them. So they tasered him and he fell and hit his head.

OK, so the dude sounds like he was being an asshole but was the taser really necessary?  It's not like he was fighting back.  WTF were they thinking?  The dude was sitting down for Christ's sake!  I guarantee someone gets suspended or fired for this ordeal.  CRAZY!!!
