A man dressed as Spider-Man has been arrested after punching a police officer in New York's Times Square who told him to stop harassing tourists.
NYPD stepped in when Junior Bishop demanded at least five dollars (£2.95) from a woman he posed for a picture with instead of the one dollar (59p) she offered him.
The officer told the costumed 25-year-old he could only accept tips - not require payment and arrested him.
A yelling, cursing Bishop then broke free after failing to produce identification and punched the officer in the face, leaving him with a cut and swollen eye.
Other officers arrived to take Spider-Man away.
Bishop was charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.
