April 1, 2018 – Santa Fe College mascot Caesar Saint was arrested Sunday morning after being spotted on the Northwest Campus without wearing his leash.
An anonymous tip came into the SFPD via the Safe Santa Fe app shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday, April 1. Officers were led on an hourslong chase before finally apprehending the suspect in the Oak Grove around 11:30 this morning.
SFPD Chief Ed Book said he was shocked and disappointed by the behavior of the beloved mascot. “Caesar is usually a very well behaved dog,” Book said, “Once this mess is over, we plan to schedule obedience classes and some quality time with Beau and Marco, SF’s therapy dogs, to help him get back on track.”
Caesar Saint, who resides on SF’s Northwest Campus often volunteers at events across campus. Sources close to the SF Administration, who wished to remain anonymous, said they are currently reassessing his future with the institution.
