Default Re: Spider-Man caught on tape punching cop in Times Square


Times Square Spider-Man busted for being a jerk to tourists

Even Daily Bugle editor J. Jonah Jameson doesn’t take Spider-Man as seriously as this phalanx of nine NYPD officers, who converged on the scene to arrest a Times Square panhandler.

The web-slinger had allegedly teamed up with a man dressed as Batman villain The Penguin to strong-arm some hapless tourists into forking over $40 for a photo.

The victims had offered the duo $20 after posing for the pic at about 1 p.m. on Seventh Avenue near East 45th Street.

Spidey (Oscar Rodriguez, 32) and Penguin (Yamil Morales, 39) allegedly balked at the tip, leading to an argument that drew the mob of officers.

Both men were handcuffed and thrown into a police van.

They were charged with aggressive panhandling, cops said.

The bust came the same day Mayor de Blasio signed a bill to regulate where costumed characters can operate in Times Square to curtail aggressive behavior, which some say is getting worse.

“I’ve been here for four or five months and I’ve seen some stuff at least three times,” said Invictus employee Anthony Boyd, 23.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
