“He [the mascot] was running around and everybody was booing him, so I said, ‘You know what? Let me go tackle him,'” Adams said of the incident. “I didn’t hit him that hard, man. All jokes aside, I didn’t hit him that hard. I don’t know what’s really going on, but they did tell me he’s in the hospital. My intention was never to hurt him. it was all about just a joke but I definitely want to check on him and make sure everything is good. At the end of the day we were out here just having fun and it wasn’t nothing intentionally to try to hurt the guy.”
rumors suggesting the mascot was taken to a hospital, but the team’s

blowing me up saying that I put him in the hospital. I’ve got to go check on
him and make sure he’s ok, but do I regret it? Noooooo!”
