The Daily Bugle must have a great headline. Spider-Man was arrested for resisting arrest, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, and assault on a law enforcement officer. Spider-Man hasn’t had enough super villains of late, because he was hanging around Time Square, posing for photographs with tourists when he scolded a woman for only giving him a dollar. A cop accosted Spidey, saying he can only ask for tips, not demand money. Spidey wasn’t having it. Our webslinging friend went off yelling at the cop. The cop then told him he was being arrested, and Spidey punched the cop in the face.
Spider-Man sure gets around: we saw him a few months back posing for pictures in Key West. I have to say he was polite with us, and we only gave him a few bucks. No photos of the incident have come forward yet, for some reason photog Peter Parker has not answered his phone since the arrest.
It’s a shameful day for all superheroes. Worst of all, it justifies the anger directed at Spidey from J. Jonah Jameson for all these years!
