N.Y.C. man who dressed as Cookie Monster rejects deal

NEW YORK -- A man who dresses up as Cookie Monster in Times Square turned down a plea deal in a New York City case accusing him of shoving a 2-year-old after his mother refused to tip him.

Osvaldo Quiroz-Lopez is charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The Daily News reported the plea deal would have let him off with two years of anger management counseling and two days of community service.

Quiroz-Lopez turned down the offer on Wednesday after prosecutors said he would have to plead guilty to the charge.

He was arrested on April 7. Police say he demanded $2 from a Connecticut family that posed with him for a photo. According to a criminal complaint, he shoved the toddler and yelled obscenities at the family.
