Cincinnati's Mascot Got Arrested During Today's Game (With Video)

It goes without saying that the people of Cincinnati don't know how to behave themselves properly when snow falls. But mascots?

Cincinnati's Bearcat mascot was cited for disorderly conduct after a snowball-throwing incident in the stands during a game against Pittsburgh. ... When Pitt's Dion Lewis scored the second of his three touchdowns in the half, students pelted him with snowballs and were told to stop.
A school spokesman says the mascot also was told to stop throwing snowballs in the stands and pushed a security guard, knocking both of them to the ground. The mascot was detained and cited. He was not identified.

Oh, Pittsburgh's up 28-10 with about three minutes left.
