Gritty is innocent!
After more than a month of investigating into assault allegations, Philadelphia police found Gritty innocent. Chris Greenwell of Newark accused the Flyers mascot of punching his 13 year old son in the back after his son tapped the mascot on the head during a meet-and-greet back in November. He wanted an apology and for the Flyers to pay the boy’s medical bills. The Flyers said in a statement: “We are pleased that the Philadelphia Police Department concluded there was no merit to the alleged claim. The Police Department’s statement confirms our thorough internal investigation that found no evidence of the described actions ever having taken place.” Greenwell will not be renewing his his Flyer’s season tickets, which he’s had since 1997.
