Instead of bad guys, it was Seattle’s most prolific self-styled superhero that ended up in handcuffs. The 23-year-old who calls himself Phoenix Jones was arrested early Sunday after he was accused of assaulting several people with pepper spray.
Police have advised Phoenix Jones to observe and report incidents to 9-1-1, but he continues to ‘inject’ himself into situations. On this last arrest, police took his super hero suit and mask. He says he has a backup.
What? Phoenix Jones, just listen, I guess.
