Time square character slugs officer, lands behind bars

NEW YORK — Spider man was arrested after punching an NYPD veteran police officer.

A twenty-five year old man dressed as Spider-man became unruly and slugged a police officer after the officer told the man to stop harassing tourists in New York’s Times Square, according to MYfox8.com.

Police say the officer interceded after Junior Bishop demanded at least $5 from a woman he posed for a picture with, instead of the $1 she offered.

The officer told Bishop he could only accept tips — not require payment.

Police say a yelling, cursing Bishop broke free from arrest after failing to produce identification and punched the officer in the face.

Other officers arrived and hauled Spider-man away.

Bishop was charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.
