CHICAGO (WFAN) -- Fighting is usually reserved for the players on the ice. On Friday, a bizarre incident occurred when the Chicago Blackhawks' mascot engaged in a scrap with a fan.

A series of Snapchat videos captured the brawl, which unfolded on the concourse.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, police were notified of a disturbance at United Center around 11:15 p.m. on Friday. The police have not made any arrests as of Saturday night.
