NEW YORK (AP) — Frankfurter-munching phenom Joey “Jaws” Chestnut has gobbled his way to a 15th win at the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest.

Chestnut powered down 63 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes Monday at the annual exhibition of excess. Women’s record-holder Miki Sudo took the women’s title after skipping last year’s frank fest because she was pregnant. Sudo downed 40 wieners and buns in 10 minutes to notch her eighth victory. A spectator wearing a Darth Vader mask momentarily disrupted the competition by rushing the stage.

Chestnut put the protester in a brief chokehold before contest officials escorted the intruder away.
