According to police in Chicago, the Chicago Blackhawks’ mascot was involved in an altercation with a fan on Friday night at the United Centre. Police say Tommy Hawk was attacked by a man on the concourse. The Chicago Sun-Times, which posted video of part of the brawl, attributed police as saying that the mascot was attacked by a white male between 18 and 20 years of age who was estimated to be 5-foot-5 and 160 pounds. The video does not show the initial encounter but does show Tommy Hawk body-slamming the man and getting in a couple of punches. Eventually, he pushed the man across the concourse. The Blackhawks said they are investigating the matter. “We are gathering the facts and will have no further comment at this time, pending our investigation,” a team spokesperson told the Sun-Times.
