Robert Garfield, Cincinnati Bearcat Mascot Arrested For Throwing Snowballs At Pittsburgh Fans, At Nippert Stadium (video)
In what is clearly an unusual arrest, the Cincinnati Bearcat Mascot, Robert Garfield, was arrested on Saturday for throwing snowballs at Pittsburgh fans during Saturday's Big East match up.
“He was throwing them at the crowd, and so of course, people threw back and missed him and hit other people,” UC police Capt. Jeff Corcoran said.
“The officer asked him to stop, and he took exception to that.”
At one point, Garfield shoved the officer and both ended up on the ground, Corcoran said.
A back-up Cincinnati Bearcat mascot was sent in for the remainder of the game
