TIMES SQUARE, Manhattan (WABC) -- A woman dressed as Minnie Mouse was arrested for harassing a family of tourists for a $20 tip.

Reyna Perez, 32, of Passaic, N.J., dressed as Minnie Mouse, posed for the picture at West 46th Street and Broadway at about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The tourist, who was with her two children, gave her a tip, but police said Perez wanted more.

"I need $20," Minnie said.

The mother found a nearby police officer and Perez was taken into custody.

Perez is charged with harassment.
