Fan arrested for thumping Burton Albion mascot Bettie Brewer

A fan has been arrested for attacking a club's mascot!

The Burton Albion supporter, 15, launched the bizarre attack on Bettie Brewer - "wife" of the club's other mascot Billy - as she entertained fans, says the Mirror.

The cartoon-type character, played by a woman wearing the team's kit, suffered minor injuries before the teenager was grabbed by stewards.

He was arrested in the Pirelli Stadium, Staffs, before Burton's 1-0 victory over Port Vale on Saturday and was later released on bail.
