Man fined for Chuck E. Cheese mascot assault

Now why is the Lurker putting this on this site you may ask but this is just one town over at the very same Chuck E. Cheese establishment that the Lurker was out of because all he wanted to do was play some damn video games.

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — 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. 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.

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.
