While Pitt and Cincinnati are currently playing in the snow, it seems that someone got a bit too carried away playing with the snow.  The Cincinnati mascot was detained by police and ejected from the stadium on Saturday, and had to be replaced.  Why?

Because he was throwing snowballs into the crowd, and when police asked him to stop, he didn't.  Something that then causes this to happen.



If that's not the greatest picture from the 2010 college football season, then i don't know what is.

Now with video!  Though be forewarned, there are some naughty words, so it's NSFW.

This is a microcosm of our season... from throwing oranges onto the field in 2008, to snowballs in 2010... and the fall of grace from Mascot of the Year (capital one) in 2009 to the clink...  its all brian kelly's fault!

The Police should have arrested her instead for public nuisance.

Dang Bearcats are always doing this every time they get a chance.  I remember when I was a kid bearcats were arrested by tbe dozens because they cannot control themselves.  The headlines were traumatic:  BEARCATS ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT WITH SNOWBALLS.  Mothers tore down my snowman!

what this article does not state, is the fact that the mascott pushed down 2 security guards after he was told to stop throwing snowballs.  After he knocked the security guards to the ground, Cinci PD and Hamilton County deputies detained him and cited him for disorderly conduct. The security guards are not licensed law enforcement, therefor he was not charged with obstruction.  I went to UC and I am a LEO and was at this game and watched it happen.

You are exactly right mike.  What if an unsuspecting fan watching the action on the field, maybe even someones kid, was hit in the head by a snowball and hurt by this idiots actions. especially after he was already warned to stop?  And if I were the head of the University I would be thanking the cops because this idiot, who in the mascot suit is a representative of the University, did hurt someone they could decide to sue the school.  A couple kids in a snowball fight who are mutually and willingly participating in it is one thing, but some representative of a school randomly throwing compacted snow into a crowd of people is asault and unacceptable.

That is pretty funny, and better yet the bearcats don't need their mascot to be terrible.

No one should get arrested for throwing snowballs, unless you pack them with a lot of ice.  Snowballs don't hurt unless you're a pussy, & then you deserve to get hit with them
