Drunk Dude Picks Fight With Spider-Man And Batman In Times Square, Everyone Loses

More Times Square costumed characters were arrested this weekend, after reportedly getting into a fight with a 22-year-old man from Queens. Thomas Rorke and two men dressed as Spider-Man and Batman were all arrested for assault.

Other mascots blamed Rorke for the fight. “He was intoxicated and messing with Batman and they got into it,” another Spidey impersonator told the Daily News. Captain America said the arrested Spider-Man was “one of the best guys, honest, religious, one of the first guys out here.”

A City Council member proposed a bill last week that would regulate the fuzzy performers, requiring them to register and pay fees. (Photo: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
