Phillie Phanatic arrests Jose Fernandez for stealing his keys

Wednesday May 18th, 2016

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. 

Imagine what would happen to Jose if he flipped his bat after taking the Phanatic deep.
