Clint Gyory, the current wearer of the Nittany Lion costume, was benched indefinitely after being charged with public drunkenness and criminal mischief.
The 20 year-old junior was so crocked that he crawled into the bed of a pickup truck and passed out. On his way to his impromptu bed, he ripped a mirror off of a car. Police found him clutching it in his forepaw.
Gyory blew a .187 blood alcohol level on the breathalyzer, a new record for Nittany Lion mascots. The previous record was held by 2009 Lion James Sheep, who blew a .164 after his arrest early on the morn of the Moo U. game last year. The legal limit in most states is .08.
Gyory has not yet entered a plea for either charge.
