Video: Watch ‘Spider-Man’ Attack a NYPD Officer

Via New York Post:

Meet your Un-Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man!

A panhandler dressed as the iconic webslinger repeatedly punched a cop in the face during a violent Times Square tussle Saturday afternoon, police said.

It had been just another routine day of bedlam at the Crossroads of the World, with crowds of costumed characters shaking down tourists for cash — until Spidey came out swinging in a caught-on-video outburst.

The not-so-Marvel-ous comic-book creature had been demanding $10 from tourists who wanted to pose for pictures, ­police said.

“Fives, tens, or 20s only,” he allegedly demanded.

It was at about 2 p.m. when a cop overheard the outrageous prices and confronted the superzero.

That’s when the angered arachnid went anarchic, sources said.
