We’ve covered some of the Times Square character antics… too many times the people dressed up and taking photographs for tips have gotten into altercations with tourists, and even with each, when turf arguments arise. Another Spidey got arrested a few days ago and took it to another level, when he showed up for court in costume. The judge was not amused, as it was his second arrest, and said if he gets charged again, bond would be set so high that he would not be able to get out.
This case is interesting, in that Batman was taking pictures with Spidey, and when the argument after they got stiffed by the tourists started escalating, whipped out the phone on his utility belt and started recording. He claims that the tourist was the aggressor. The cops found both parties at fault, and charged both Spider-Man and the Tourist with assault. It will be interesting to see what happens at trial…and whether Spidey’s lawyer can convince him it is in his best interest to appear in the manner of his alter-ego.
