One of the men that plays the New England Patriots' mascot was arrested in a prostitution sting in Rhode Island.

Law enforcement sources told NBC 10 one of the johns who tried to pay for sex with a prostitute was 47-year-old Robert Sormanti of Warwick. He is one of several people who plays the Pat the Patriot mascot.

"The Pat Patriot mascot costume is worn by multiple people, each of whom are held responsible and accountable for their actions. The individual in question has been suspended. The mascot responsibilities will continue to be fulfilled by others," said a statement from the team.

Shame on you, Pat the Patriot. I'm sure if your costume allowed facial expressions you'd be sporting a look of embarrassment right about now.

One wonders what kind of punishment Patriots coach Bill Belichick would dole out if the cartoonish mascot fell under his umbrella of management, especially since he's sending players home for being a few minutes late for practice.
