Two of Times Square's costumed characters have taken a break from creeping on tourists to terrorize each other instead. Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty were arrested on assault charges yesterday afternoon for fighting in one of New York City's greatest tourist traps, New York Daily News reports. The people inside the costumes were two grown-ass women: Sandra Mocha, 34, and Giovanna Melendez, 40.
It's unclear what started Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty: SmackDown in Times Square, but we all know cats and mice are sworn enemies. If their respective cartoons were to air crossover episodes, the end result would no doubt be the same.
After the fight the remaining mascots pulled together for a family meeting, presumably to discuss how to push back the next incident as long as possible. Expect to hear about another arrest in, oh, a month.
