Yogi Bear Arrested whole page

CACHE COUNTY, Utah – Turns out he isn’t smarter than the average bear.

Yogi Bear won’t be stealing any pic-a-nic baskets in the near future.

According to the Cache County Sheriff’s website, he has been arrested on a warrant for failure to appear, a Class B Misdemeanor.

Officials said his one phone call was made to Boo Boo but no bail has been set so it looks like he will be saying, “Hello, Mr. Sheriff, Sir” for a while.

His girlfriend, Cindy Bear, said he will be in the doghouse when he gets back to Jellystone Park.

The Cache County Sheriff’s Office said Yogi was “arrested” as part of a training exercise for the department.
