21-year-old University of Pitttsburgh student Jonathan Hewson was arrested on robbery charges while wearing a full Spider-Man costume. A clerk at the Atwood Express called police after tazing Hewson, who was then found about a block away. Don’t worry: There’s video.
In this video from WPXI in Pittsburgh they mention that surveillance footage of the robbery also exists, but does not seem to have been released yet.
Spider-Man has a hard enough time protecting his reputation for the constant efforts of the Daily Bugle to tarnish his good name. He really doesn’t need stuff like this making him look bad.
