Chuck E. Cheese Settles Suit of Boob-Grabbing Mascot; Mouse to Keep Dirty Paws Off Guests

Posted By on Fri, Jul 9, 2010 at 8:33 AM

Remember the case of the Chuck E. Cheese mascot accused of grabbing a woman's breast during her visit to a south St. Louis County restaurant?

Daily RFT was the first to bring you the scandalous photo (right) of employee William Thigpen (dressed as a giant mouse) allegedly touching the bosom of 22-year-old Jennifer Sorbello in the summer of 2008.

After wending its way through court for more than a year, attorneys with Chuck E. Cheese filed settlement papers last month.

Sorbello's attorney had sought unspecified damages for assault and public humiliation. It's unclear exactly how much Sorbello received from the restaurant chain. Though as On Point News reports, a recent ruling in the case may explain why Chuck E. Cheese attorneys decided to settle. 

Turns out, Thigpen may have a problem keeping his paws to himself. Last month the judge in the case ruled that Sorbello's attorney could submit into evidence a complaint that another Chuck E. Cheese employee had made about Thigpen.

Yep, it seems Chuck E. Cheese may have been ratted out by one of his own.
