    The SPHL’s Knoxville Ice Bears fell to the Peoria Rivermen 9-3 Friday night, but fans had a different kind of concern as they left Knoxville Civic Coliseum. During the game, someone in attendance pushed team mascot Chilly down the stairs, which resulted in a scary scene. 

    The employee had to be cut from the suit in order for medical personnel to evaluate and later take him to a local hospital. The “fan” who did the shoving was detained.

    The guy who pushed the mascot down the stairs was arrested and is currently detained at the Civic Coliseum.

    “They cut him out of the suit to properly care for possible head and neck injuries,” Sgt. Jason Keck told the Knoxville News Sentinel

    The Ice Bears Tweeted an update on Saturday detailing Chilly's injuries:

    Update on Chilly...bruised back and concussion. After a little rest and hibernation, he'll be back to his crazy self!

    The Toledo Walleye and Evansville IceMen held “Heroes Night” on Saturday, which was a good excuse to wear incredibly awesome jerseys themed to Batman and The Riddler. 

    So if you’re dressing one team like the Caped Crusader, and the other team as one of Gotham’s most infamous criminals … well, you knew what was going to happen. 

    POW! BAM! KAPOW!

    "Riddle me this, Batman: What has five digits but is measured in pounds?"

    "What?"

    "MY FIST!" 

    The game in Toledo featured four fights between the Dark Knight clad Walleye and the green question mark speckled IceMen, including Cody "Dark Knight" Lampl and Kevin "Please Don't Let Jim Carrey's Performance Define This Iconic Character" Harvey. 

    Here's another battle between the forces of justice and chaos:

    The game worn jerseys will be sold after the final whistle during a live auction, with proceeds benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association, March of Dimes and the Walleye Wishing Well.
