"Chicago Bulls mascot busted
CHICAGO, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- The man who plays the slam-dunking Chicago Bulls mascot "Da Bull" was arrested for allegedly selling marijuana from his car.
Police found 6 ounces of pot with a street value of more than $1,000 and a scale in the trunk of his car late Monday night.
Chester Brewer, 31, was charged with delivery of marijuana and appeared for a bond hearing Tuesday afternoon.
Brewer has worked as the Bulls athletic mascot, "Da Bull" part-time since 1996 sharing team mascot duties at the United Center with "Benny the Bull," a rotund bovine cousin who does not perform crowd-pleasing gymnastics, break-dancing, or slam dunks jumping off a mini-trampoline.
"Da Bull" sometimes wore NBA referees' uniform, over his number 95 jersey.
The muscular Brewer was a former member of the Jesse White Tumblers, founded by Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White.
WMAQ-TV said he listed team mascot as his profession.
A preliminary court hearing was set for Feb. 17. "
