An incident in which a fan tackled Colorado Rockies mascot Dinger is being investigated by the Denver Police Department.

“We’re working with the Rockies to try to identify the individual who was involved,” Denver Police spokesman Doug Schepman said Thursday (April 13) via the Denver Post.. “We’re looking at all the available evidence.

A video shared on Twitter by another fan shows Dinger, a fuzzy purple triceratops mascot, dancing on top of the Rockies' dugout during the team's win against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday (April 10) night.

"Boooo, drunk guy.💜 you, Dinger,," Twitter user Corrina (@_coco0218) wrote.

Another Twitter user asked the fan if the suspect was arrested shortly after the video was posted, to which Corinna responded that she was ""Honestly not sure, but acknoiwledged that the mascot's "handler and field employees stepped in and escorted him up," adding that Dinger was able to get "back out and celebrate the win."
