Assault on Chuck E. Cheese mascot leads to fine.

A Massachusetts man has been fined $500 for assaulting a Chuck E. Cheese mouse. Authorities say 34-year-old Trahan Pires thought the perpetually happy mascot had pinned his 11-year-old son against a video game after the boy said "Chuck" had picked him up by the arms and cornered him by a console. Pires, of Fairhaven, ripped off the mascot's head piece, pointed a finger at the man inside and yelled at him. The 19-year-old man in the mouse suit told police he put his arms out to get through a crowd of children trying to knock him over and never grabbed anyone. A witness agreed with that account, adding that the mascot only bumped into the boy accidentally while turning around. Pires pleaded guilty Monday. A judge fined him after rejecting the prosecution's request for a six-month jail sentence. Pires' family was at the children's restaurant in Dartmouth in May to celebrate his son's birthday.

Some people just need to relax. I doubt Chuck E. Cheese is going to hurt your kid in a crowd of people.

I wouldn't want to be a restaurant mascot, and that's a good reason for why.

Stupid over-reactive idiots.
