Nittany Lion Collared for DUI

Student who plays the mascot arrested

The Nittany Lion may have to sit out the Rose Bowl!

James Sheep, a Penn State senior who plays the university's mascot, was pulled over for drunk driving on November 22, at about 3:16 a.m., authorities said Monday.

A State College police officer pulled him over just hours before the Michigan State game, because his vehicle was overloaded with passengers piled onto each other and blocking the driver's view.

Sheep was charged with DUI, and it’s unclear whether he'll be allowed to attend the Rose Bowl game.
