Blackhawks' Mascot Punches, Body Slams Alleged Attacker

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.

The mascot probably started it by overstepping his bounds. I've seen it before.

2. I'm going with drunk angry fan of a losing team lashes out...

Thinking the mascot was an easy mark, and pays the price.

I've seen that happen too.
