Utah Cops Arrest Yogi Bear, Notorious Basket Thief, On Variety Of Charges
getting booked in Florida, Yogi Bear was purportedly collared yesterday in Provo, Utah.
The Hanna-Barbera character was detained yesterday on a variety of counts, including fishing without a license and an immigration charge, according to the Utah County Sheriff's Office Corrections Bureau web site.
As seen above, the mug shot of Bear--who is described as 60 years old and 490 pounds--is sandwiched between suspects arrested for pot possession and vehicular infractions. A second page on the sheriff's web site provides additional details about Bear's bust.
However, while suspected of prior thefts involving picnic baskets, Bear's reported arrest Tuesday morning apparently did not actually happen. The entry on the sheriff's web site was done as part of a training or testing exercise.
