Somebody better call Patrick Star.

A man dressed in a SpongeBob SquarePants costume was detained -- but not arrested -- outside of Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Wednesday after an alleged altercation with two women, the Los Angeles Times and TMZ report.

TMZ has obtained exclusive video, available below, of the incident.

Steve Boelhouwer, who works at a creative agency across the street, told HuffPost that he snapped the picture (also available below) from his office window using his iPhone 4.

SpongeBob has had a rough week. On Monday, a study was released in the journal Pediatrics that says children who watch SpongeBob can have
problems with learning and short-term attention.

And this isn't SpongeBob's first run in with the law. In June, a man dressed as SpongeBob SquarePants was arrested in New York for allegedly harassing straphangers, according to Yahoo!. Adam Horovitz, a member of the Beastie Boys, detailed the incident on the band's blog.
