Kobayashi's Arrest
7/5/2010

Statement of Major League Eating on the arrest of Takeru Kobayashi:

"Takeru Kobayashi's actions at the Hot Dog Contest in Coney Island were inappropriate and unfortunate, but it did not diminish Joey Chestnut's victory, or the holiday tradition that dates back generations. Kobayashi was a great champion and we hope that he is able to resolve his current situation and move past this."
