He outdid himself again with a record 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes to win his 10th title in 11 years. He beat Carmen Cincotti (sihn-CAH'-tee), who ate 60.

Chestnut tweeted earlier that he planned to break his record of 70 from last July 4, and he wasn't shooting for just one more dog.

Meanwhile, Miki Sudo notched a fourth-time win in the women's division. Second place Michelle Lesco of Tucson, Ariz., ate 32 dogs. Police could not immediately confirm if the arrestees were animal rights protesters.

"Nathan's continues to promote violence against animals by showcasing people eating them for profits and notoriety", said group spokeswoman Amanda Houdeschell, claiming responsibility for the melee. George Shea, the organizer praised Joey Chestnut's performance on Tuesday as if he were a warrior returning victorious from a distant battlefield. Both he and Stonie are from San Diego, California. "I said, 'Sure, that's no problem". Women's record-holder Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas came in third with 30.

Legend has it that the contest got started between some friends to prove their patriotism shortly after Nathan Handwerker opened his first hot dog stand near Surf and Stillwell avenues in 1916, according to Nathan's Famous.

The men's competition is later Tuesday.

Coincidentally, my two eaters, Thomas and Stonie, were thought to be shoo-ins to finish second to the clear-cut favorites, Chestnut and three- (now four-) time champ Miki Sudo.

At the Nathan's contest previous year, three Direct Action Everywhere activists were arrested for trying to jump the stage and interrupt the contest.

The title of king of the hot dogs has been defended successfully by last year's victor Joey Chestnut.

Chestnut's facing Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie in a rematch, along with 14 other competitiors.

So, there's no question who the top dogs are this year.
