Say It Ain't So, Spidey!

When you visit Times Square in New York, chances are good you’re going to run into a street performer in a costume you recognize.
Well, sort of. These aren’t Disneyworld quality outfits – these are the worn-by-many outfits you’d find at the local costume shop around Halloween.
If you’re not too creeped out, you just might want to take a picture with that character. After all, how many times will you be able to snap a picture with a superhero on the sidewalk of the Big Apple, right?
So, on Sunday, one such picture opportunity got out of hand. A woman snapped a shot with Spiderman and offered a dollar for his efforts. Spidey refused the dollar, demanding a larger bill.
A nearby cop overheard the conversation, and reminded Spidey that he could accept donations, but couldn’t ask for money. And that’s when Spidey hit the cop square in the face – with his fist, not some webbing fluid.
Spidey was carted off and charged with a variety of charges.
Wouldn’t it be great if some guy dressed as The Hulk showed up to pay his bail?
