Patrick A. Davenport, of Vernon, New Jersey was arrested and charged with distribution and possession of child pornography. Oh, did we mention the 22-year-old spent his days as Scooter, the mascot for the Sussex Skyhawks minor league baseball team? Keep on rockin’, New Jersey. At least Steinbrenner would have brought in a sexual predator in his 40s.

An initial look at Davenport’s computer revealed child pornography, although a more detailed review of the hard drive is pending, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said there is no evidence of inappropriate behavior by Davenport at Skyhawks games.

If he posts bail [set at $50,000], Davenport is not permitted to use a computer and must have no unsupervised contact with children under age 16. via.

Can’t we live in a world where our children can grope adults in giant furry costumes without worrying about the consequences? I’m sure getting attention from a giant cartoon bird does wonders for a kid’s self-esteem, though might explain my crush on Rosie Red. There’s just no worse fate than Chris Hansen calling you into the minor league manager’s office, saying, “Skipper wants to see you. Bring your laptop.” Oh, minor league. I just got that. Sorry, Rob.
