You best not be messing with the Phillie Phanatic.

Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez learned the hard way on Tuesday, swiping the keys to the Phanatic’s four-wheeler and getting booked as a result. The Phillies mascot had initially asked a police officer to cuff Fernandez, but the friendly cop let him do the honors.
