Guy once busted as Spider-Man re-arrested as the Hulk

The Times Square “Spider-Man” who made headlines last year when he clobbered a cop in the face reappeared as the “Incredible Hulk” over the weekend — and he was busted for flipping off a different officer and telling her he would “f***” her up if she were a civilian.

Junior Bishop, 26, who was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration, was caught hassling tourists at the Crossroads of the World and demanding money from them at around 3:30 p.m.Sunday, according to law enforcement sources.

When an officer approached the visitors and told them that tipping was optional, the costumed creep snapped — spouting off obscenities at her and another cop nearby.

Sources said Bishop was ultimately arrested after he refused to give police his identification so they could issue him a summons.

One of Bishop’s friends, who was dressed as Spidey on Monday, described the outburst to The Post on Monday.

“He told the cops, ‘I have a job to do. if you have no uniform, I’ll f*** you up,” the man recalled, refusing to give his real name.

“I know temperature,” he said. “He’s just like me. I’d do the same thing.” :rolleyes:

The web-slinger added that Bishop just wanted the cops to stop “harassing” him and that he didn’t understand why the officers were so concerned with him anyway.

“That’s not their job. They should focus on ISIS,” he said.

And Bishop’s buddy wasn’t the only street performer who was irked by the NYPD’s efforts to put a stop to aggressive panhandling.

“Six (police officers) were trying to intimidate the turtle ninjas yesterday,” explained [B]Jose Escalona Martinez aka Batman.

“You can see the face of the police (and) how angry they were,” he said. “This is invasion of privacy.”

Last July, Bishop was caught on video slugging a cop in the face repeatedly after he asked him to stop demanding money from tourists. But despite being charged with felony assault for allegedly breaking the cop’s glasses and injuring his face, he got off free after the Manhattan District Attorney’s declined to bring a case against him. :mad:

Bishop has sued the NYPD for false arrest and is currently asking for $1.5 million in damages in relation to the incident, which went viral shortly after the video of the scuffle was posted online.

The sleazy superhero has a rap sheet that includes assault for punching a woman in the face in 2013 and another bust that year for aggressive panhandling — when he blocked sightseers in Times Square from leaving after they refused to give him a tip.

A Times Square Spider-Man was thrown behind bars on Tuesday after he chewed out cops in Spanish and refused to follow their orders, sources said.

Oscar Rodriguez, 32, had been approached by the officers at around 1 p.m. because he was hassling tourists in Duffy Square — an area between 45th and 47th Streets that is supposed to be off limits to costumed creeps, according to law-enforcement sources.

“The police approached him and he was boisterous,” a vendor in the area recalled. “So instead of giving him a ticket, two cops cuffed him and hauled him away.”

Sources said Rodriguez snapped when cops began questioning him — flailing his arms in the air and refusing to cooperate.

“He was resisting,” another vendor said. “He didn’t want them to put cuffs on him. He was talking in Spanish. He was talking loud.”

Rodriguez was still dressed as the iconic web-slinger as cops arrested him for violating park rules and refusing to provide police with identification, sources said.

The superzero has one prior arrest for turnstile jumping.

A man who saw Rodriguez going to jail on Tuesday told The Post that he has a reputation for being a local menace.

“He is very aggressive. If you give him no money he will take your phone and delete the picture,” he explained. “And he doesn’t want a dollar either. He wants more $5, $10, $20.”
