Fan arrested after grabbing Rays mascot at Red Sox game

St. Petersburg, Florida -- A fan was arrested after police say he grabbed Raymond the Tampa Bay Rays mascot at Wednesday night's Rays-Red Sox game.

St. Pete Police say Trevor Martin, who is from Massachusetts, twice reached over the railing and grabbed Raymond around the neck and pulled him back toward the railing.

Witnesses -- which included several Tropicana Field employees and fans -- said Raymond had to push Martin off of him to break free from his grasp.

The person inside the mascot suit chose not to press charges for battery, but Martin was arrested for disorderly intoxication due to "showing several signs of impairment including slurred, mumbled speech; watery, bloodshot eyes; swaying and staggering while walking and a moderate odor of alcohol on his breath," according to the arrest report.

Police say Martin admitted to drinking two beers during the game.
