MILWAUKEE -- One of Milwaukee's most wanted has been caught and released.
BMO Harris Bradley Center officials confirmed Monday that the flying menace that terrorized Saturday's game between Marquette and Providence was contained in the arena's east atrium and released from of the building.
Now Monday's battle between Marquette and South Florida can go on, bat free.
The bat caused four different delays in Saturday's Marquette victory, flying fearlessly and dangerously low to players, coaches, officials and fans. At one point, players and coaches from both teams were on the floor throwing towels and warm-up pants at the bat, trying to corral it.
Arena officials eventually turned all of the lights off in the building in an attempt to calm the bat down. The scene turned surreal when the Bradley Center DJ played Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and fans took their cell phones out and swayed them side-to-side like they were at a concert.
