Kobayashi arrested after Joey Chestnut hot dog win

For all the competitive eating fans who thought Joey Chestnut was the man and Kobayashi couldn’t get arrested you were wrong.

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.
