People dressed as Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty arrested over fight in Times Square
A fight broke out between two people dressed as Hello Kitty and Minnie Mouse in Times Square yesterday. The argument was allegedly over tips.

Both people were arrested and charged with assault.
Tipping costumed workers is not illegal, but there have been several incidents including arrests for "agressive panhandling."
Let's just keep in mind that this fight did not take place between a cartoon cat and mouse, but actual people who work an unregulated gig and depend on tips to survive.
