St. Louis Superman Breaks Up Fight, Saves the Day at Busch Stadium [VIDEO]

Great Dan Caesar’s Ghost!

Watch out, Busch Stadium drunks, because that’s not a bird or a plane. That’s St. Louis’ very own Superman.

Superman, a.k.a. Charlie Chartland, swooped in and broke up a fight between two overzealous baseball fans on Thursday…

....Trailed by applause and cheers, Superman runs into the fight, breaks it up calmly, takes a bow and then runs to the camera to deliver his final bon mot: “Guess what, folks, he’s going back to Wrigley.”

Things take a turn, though, when another fight earns Superman’s attention. Sebek’s next video shows Superman sprawled on top of a very drunk man.

...The drunk man tries to pull Superman’s cape out from under him, earning him a harsh rebuke from the caped crusader: “You need to get lost, all right? You need to get lost.”

But Mr. Too Many Budweisers just can’t deal with Superman’s order. He starts screaming and flinging his body around, and the video ends with Superman telling him what he needs to hear:

“You’re drunk.”

I knew there was a reason I was a Superman fan. On the other hand, the laws regarding assault and such may not look too kindly on him, unless he was VERY careful about what he actually did. - Brock Hanke
