Red Sox Fan-Masco

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla (AP) -- An intoxicated Boston Red Sox Fan got a trip to the Pinellas County Jail after grabbing the mascot for the Tampa Bay Rays.
The incident happened during Tuesday's game between the Rays and Boston Red Sox at Tropicana Field.
27-year-old Trevor James Martin reached across the railing and grabbed the blue, fuzzy mascot named Raymond twice. Raymond pushed back and broke free of Martin's grip.
Officers say the "victim within the mascot suit" declined to press battery charges.
The report says Martin was staggering, slurring his words and smelled of alcohol. Martin, who lives in Boston's suburbs, says he had two beers during the game. He faces a misdemeanor disorderly intoxication charge and was released from jail on a $100 bond.
