After Tommy Hawk was allegedly attacked Friday night at the United Center, the Chicago Blackhawks mascot was seen trading punches with a man in a new video that emerged online Saturday.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago police responded to a disturbance at the arena around 11:15 p.m. Friday. The police said a male portraying the mascot was punched and put in a headlock by his alleged attacker. No one was in custody as of Saturday, reports the Sun-Times.
A video that went viral Saturday showed Tommy Hawk picking up the man and slamming him to the ground before throwing a few punches of his own. The alleged attacker tried to fight back, and the mascot eventually pushed the man away from him.
A Blackhawks spokesperson told the Sun-Times that the team was looking into the incident.
"We are gathering the facts and will have no further comment at this time, pending our investigation," a Blackhawks spokesperson said.
The Blackhawks lost 4–3 to the Winnipeg Jets in overtime Friday night.
