The Penn State Mascot likes to get his drink on

It’s been a rough couple of years for the Penn State football team, at least when the subject of arrests is brought up.
James Sheep is a senior at Penn State and is also the Nittany Lion mascot. Last Saturday Sheep proved he can be a member of the football team by getting arrested for driving under the influence.
Maybe the Sheep was a little too excited about winning the Land Grant Trophy and going to the Rose Bowl, but that doesn’t explain why not only he chose to be an idiot and drive while intoxicated but also he was playing overcrowded taxi as well.
The officer who made the stop saw that the vehicle was overloaded, with passengers piled onto each other and blocking the driver’s view.
Now I’m sure the other passengers were perfectly alright to drive. *Sarcasm*
He was arrested at 3:15 AM on Saturday morning, leaving plenty of time to go through the booking process and make bail. Didn’t anyone notice he had a hangover for the game?
It will be up to JoePa on whether Sheep travels to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. No word of ESPN’s Outside the Lines is planning a follow-up.
In fairness to the Lion, the final home football game means now he has to pull duty at PSU basketball games. I’d be drinking too.
