CBS New York reports on Saturday night, a man dressed as Spider-Man wound up in cuffs after he allegedly assaulted a police officer following a dispute with a woman.
Police say an officer was at his post on West 42nd Street and Broadway when he saw a man dressed as Spider-Man take a photo with a woman.
Investigators say the officer told the man, Junior Bishop, 25, of Brooklyn to stop harassing tourists.
That’s when authorities say the man in costume punched the police officer in the face.
According to CBS News York, this isn’t the first time people dressed up as Spider-Man or other characters have had run-ins with the law.
Now, there are renewed calls for a crackdown on costumed characters in Times Square.
