Grump Is The Most Persisent Of Molester Mascots

Illustration for article titled Grump Is The Most Persisent Of Molester Mascots

For the second time in less than a week, the man who worked part-time as Grump, the mascot for the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Red Barons, has been arrested for doing naughty things with someone who is not old enough to do naughty things. From The Citizens Voice:

It was Jay Hastings' second arrest on sexual assault charges in less than a week. The 42-year-old Scranton man was arrested Tuesday by White Haven police, who allege Hastings sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy he met in an Internet chat room.


That is one seriously dedicated molester. I guess the first arrest on Saturday wasn't enough to teach Grump that he must stay away from young rump. He met the boy on MySpace, and admitted having sex with the boy "at least 10 times." I probably don't have to ask this, but the Red Barons know that they can't use Grump anymore, right?

So much crime in Scranton, and Dwight and his pepper spray can only do so much.
