An intoxicated Boston Red Sox fan is in the Pinellas County Jail after grabbing Raymond, the mascot for the Tampa Bay Rays, several times

The incident happened during Tuesday's game between the Rays and Boston Red Sox at Tropicana Field.

According to an incident report, 27-year-old Trevor James Martin reached across the railing and grabbed mascot on two separation occasions. The mascot was able to break free both times.

Officers say the "victim within the mascot suit" declined to press charges.

The incident report stated Martin "showed several signs of impairment including slurred, mumbled speech; watery, bloodshot eyes; poor motor control (ie-swaying while standing and staggering while walking) and a moderate odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath."

Martin faces a disorderly intoxication charge.
