superman-times-square-4Photos can’t properly convey the profanity-laced struggle that ensued when cops tried to arrest an unruly Superman wannabe, so luckily video footage has surfaced. Last week, the costumed character took off running when police handcuffed his friend, dressed as Batman, after they asked him for some permit he didn’t need and then ID he didn’t have. Despite screaming, “I’m not getting arrested,” the Superman performer was tackled to the ground and eventually taken into custody, but not without a tussle first. See the comic tragedy unfold below as officers are unable to handcuff the impersonator.
