Phoenix Jones Autistic Children
November 3, 2011 by staff
Phoenix Jones Autistic Children, Seattle’s most famous masked crusader, Phoenix Jones, now an unemployed superhero after being fired from his preparation for working life teaching autistic children, and were told by the State no longer allowed to work with vulnerable children or adults after his arrest last month, Publicola has learned.
“I had to leave work in the middle of the day,” says Jones. “It was embarrassing.”
Jones explained that he has worked with five children with developmental disabilities, autism who were between four and 18 years old, the last five years in their homes and state centers of attention, shopping with them, teaching them to balance checkbooks, and go for walks.
Jones’ latest problems come weeks after he was arrested by Seattle police for allegedly pepper sprayed a group of men and women near Pioneer Square. Jones claims he was breaking a fight, but police arrested him for assault. After a court appearance in the case, Jones revealed his secret identity as 23-year-old mixed martial arts fighter Ben Fodor.
Prosecutors have not charged over the incident, and a spokeswoman for the office of city attorney says the case is still under investigation.
Last week, Jones received a letter from the State Department of Social Services and Health, informing him that no longer allowed to work with children. Publicola was unable to determine exactly why DSHS disqualified Jones from working with children, but it seems to be due to his pending assault case.
When asked for comment, Jones said he had been warned not to talk much about the circumstances of his apparent dismissal, but confirmed that it was no longer able to work with autistic children.
“Everybody knew I was Phoenix Jones” he says.
Jones says that because of his arrest, “a list” keeps you from working with children, because it has “a history of inserting myself into situations that are dangerous.”
Jones, of course, disputes that characterization. “I would say have a history of struggle against crime,” he says. “The whole point of what I do is to protect people.”
Jones is not sure how it will pay the bills now. He says he has received offers from the organization fights fight Strikeforce mixed martial arts, and plans to start fighting crime during the day, in addition to their nightly patrols around Seattle. Other than that, he says, “I do not really know.”
