This news is all over the wires…
Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi was arrested Sunday after attempting to hop on stage following a rival’s win in the 95th annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Competition.
Joey “Jaws” Chestnut celebrated the Fourth of July by downing 54 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Moments later, Kobayashi, who did not compete due to contractual issues with Major League Eating, tried to jump on stage wearing a “Free Kobi” shirt, but police arrested him. The 32-year-old eater won the competition six years in a row before Chestnut bested him in 2007.
