The Cincinnati Bearcats mascot was throwing snowballs during Saturday's game when police approached to let the fella know that he should knock it off. M. Robert "Bobby" Garfield III (yes, that's his name), the man inside the suit, took exception and shoved the officer.
Bad move, Bearcat.
Cops took him to the ground and arrested him right there in the crowd. See for yourself.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Garfield was cited for disorderly conduct.
