Joey Chestnut does it again! Chestnut won the annual Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest.Â This guy is an eating beast! How can someone eat that many hot dogs?
The crazy story isn't that Chestnut won the Nathan's contest again, but that ex-champ Kobayashi was arrested after the match was over!
After Chestnut's victory today at the Nathan's International Hot Dog Eating Contest Kobayashi was indeed taken into custody.
Chestnut snacked down on 54 hot dogs for his fourth consecutive victory. That was 14 short of his world record.
Shortly after, six-time winner Takeru Kobayashi went on stage and police grabbed him. He tried to hold onto barricades as he was taken away.
From what I understand,Â six-time winner Takeru Kobayashi went on stage and police grabbed him. He tried to hold onto barricades as he was taken away.Â Kobayashi did not participate in this years contest, so that makes this story that much more bizarre.
Kobayashi was not picked up by any sponsors, leaving him out of the contest.
