PASADENA, Calif. — Johnny Spirit, famous for appearing at Michigan State games painted green with a white ‘S’ on his chest, was photographed being cuffed by police after the MSU Rose Bowl victory.
MSU fan Debbie Henrie Parks posted on her Facebook page a picture of the superfan being cuffed by police.
Sheehan reported that Johnny Spirit merely didn’t have a pass to be where he was:
Johnny Spirit is talking with authorities as people chant "Let him go!" He really wasn't causing a disturbance, but he didn't have a pass.—
