Joey Chestnut Puts Protestor in Chokehold During Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, Still Wins! (Video)

There was a crazy moment during this year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest!

Joey Chestnut unsurprisingly was the winner of the annual contest, but wait until you see what happened to him during the competition.

The 38-year-old competitive eater was approached by a protestor in the middle of the contest on Monday afternoon (July 4) at Coney Island in New York City.

Joey put the man into a chokehold while he had a hot dog still in his mouth… and he still won the contest.
