Local Phillies Fan Who Was Tasered Gets Probation

Seventeen-year-old Steven Consalvi, from Gilbertsville, made the national news when he got tasered for running onto the field at Citizens Bank Park during the 8th inning of a Phillies game.  His father, Wayne Consalvi, owns an auto repair shop in North Coventry Township and was interviewed by the local media regarding the incident.

Steven received 80 hours of public service and is on probation for six months.  I think this young man is fortunate to have escaped without more serious charges.  Hopefully he learned his lesson and others will think twice before doing something like this.  It may seem like the “cool” thing to do at the time but the consequences far outweight the “thrill”.  Fortunately, this sentence should not mess up his permanent record.
