VIDEO: Spongebob goes nuts


SpongeBob SquarePants, or a man pretending to be Spongebob Squarepants (sources suggest it's more likely the latter) was detained by police outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The man was questioned but not arrested after getting caught in an incident with two females.

The LA Times describe the altercation as "the latest run-in between characters who pose for pictures with tourists and then aggressively demand money. City rules allow people to tip characters, but prohibit them from demanding payment."

All this just a day after Gumby (or someone dressed as him) turned himself in after making a pig's ear of a robbery.

You can now see a video of what happened here:
