A 22-year-old man who plays the Scooter mascot at Sussex Skyhawks games was arrested and charged with making child porn computer files available to others, according to a published report.
According to the New Jersey Herald, Patrick A. Davenport of Vernon is charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.
Police said their initial investigation revealed child pornography on Davenport's computer, although a more detailed review of the hard drive is pending, prosecutors told the newspaper.
Davenport was being held in the Sussex County Jail on $50,000 bail.
Prosecutors told the newspaper there is no evidence of inappropriate behavior by Davenport at Skyhawks games.
The Skyhawks' general manager, Ben Wittkowski, said the organization only learned of the arrest Monday afternoon and was not prepared to comment. He said the team has a second person who dresses as Scooter for games.
