If you think the Oregon Duck doing The Dougie was unique, you’ll love what the Cincinnati Bearcats mascot had in store for fans on Saturday during the Pittsburgh-Cincinnati game. At first glance, you might think this is a joke. Why wouldn’t you? A mascot — in costume — being restrained and arrested? It’s pretty hard to believe, but it happened. Check out the Cincinnati Bearcat mascot arrest video via YouTube user wingedhelmet13:
According to an AP report, the mascot was cited for disorderly conduct after throwing snowballs into the stands. He was allegedly told to stop throwing snowballs before pushing a security guard and knocking him over. The mascot was then arrested and cited and a backup mascot took over his duties for the second half. Yes, seriously.
P.S. — How about the girl with the “you guys should stop recording this it’s not that funny.” Is she serious? Apparently she has no appreciation for capturing a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.Google+
