Superhero Pepper Spray
November 24, 2011 by staff
Superhero Pepper Spray, Seattle’s self-proclaimed “superhero” Phoenix Jones won’t face charges with misdemeanor assault for a pepper spray incident last month near the Alaskan Way Viaduct because of “proof problems,” City Attorney Pete Holmes said Wednesday.
“However, Mr. Fodor is no hero,” Holmes said in a statement, “just a deeply misguided individual.
“He has been warned that his actions put himself in danger, and this latest episode demonstrates that innocent bystanders can also be harmed.”
Phoenix Jones, whose real name is Benjamin Fodor, was arrested Oct. 9 after interjecting himself into a group of people and pepper spraying several people. Fodor, 23, was jailed and released the same day on bond. When no charges were immediately filed, he said he would “continue to patrol.”
The City Attorney’s Office had the option to file charges, but announced charges would not be filed after the case was reviewed. Fodor previously told reporters he was trying to stop as assault.
