Student in Spider-Man Costume Tazed and Arrested for Robbery

Maybe old J. Jonah Jameson was right this whole time?


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 theĀ Daily Bugle to tarnish his good name. He really doesn’t need stuff like this making him look bad.
