(WBRE/WYOU-TV) – A Pennsylvania hockey mascot accused of assault is in the clear.

The Philadelphia Flyers’ “Gritty”, was accused of punching a 13-year-old boy in the back during a fan event in November.

The boy’s father complained to Philadelphia police, who launched an investigation.

Officers announced Monday morning Gritty is exonerated, and the incident “Did not constitute physical assault as alleged.”
