The Chicago Cubs filed a lawsuit on Friday against a group of men for posing as the rogue 'Billy Cub' mascot. 

The Cubs claimed that the group of men were charging for pictures to be taken with the mascot outside of Wrigley Field and are not affiliated with the Cubs organization. The bear mascot sported a Cubs baseball hat, a gray Cubs away jersey, and the number 78 with the name 'Billy Cub' on the back, according to the suit.

You may have been familiarized with the unofficial mascot on April 5, when a video surfaced YouTube capturing 'Billy Cub' punching a man at the John Barleycorn Sports Bar & Restaurant on Clark Street for knocking off the mascot's head.
