Police arrest former hotdog-eating champion

http://news-updations.blogspot.comA former hotdog-eating champion has been arrested after he was trying to crash the stage of the annual event in Coney Island, New York.

Six-time champion Takeru Kobayashi, of Japan, was jailed yesterday after the 4 July contest.

Earlier in the day, Joey "Jaws" Chestnut ate his way to a fourth consecutive championship. But he was upstaged by the appearance of his biggest rival, Kobayashi, who crashed the eating platform after a Chestnut's win and wrestled with police.

"Let him eat! Let him eat!" the crowd chanted as officers handcuffed the world's No 3 professional eater, dubbed The Tsunami.

The 32-year-old did not compete this year because he refused to sign a contract with Major League Eating – a franchise that sanctions with professional competitive eating events. On his Japanese-language blog, he said he wanted to be free to enter contests sanctioned by other groups.
