Cincinnati Bearcat Mascot Arrested for Throwing Snowballs (Video)
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.

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.
