Man steals minor league baseball mascot costume
Tuesday September 22nd, 2015

A man has been arrested in North Carolina after he decided to steal a mascot costume from the Charlotte Knights during a beer festival being held at the team’s stadium over the weekend.

Joseph Gillespie donned the costume while at BB&T Ballpark and then fled the stadium while dressed as Homer the Dragon. Unfortunately for the criminal mastermind, people notice a car driven by a giant green dragon, and police easily tracked him to his home where he was arrested for possession of stolen property, according to WSOC-TV.
