From Huff Po:
Apparently this college student didn't have any spidey sense.
Unfortunately for 21-year-old Jonathan Hewson, an attempt at robbing a convenience store was thwarted by a clerk with a weapon, WPXI reports.
At least he'll go down in University of Pittsburgh history as the dude who got arrested while wearing his Spider-Man costume.
Investigators say Hewson entered an Atwood Express in Pittsburgh on Friday morning and yelled, "How much money you got?"
Hewson ran out of the store, but apparently didn't go to far, according to the New York Daily News. He was arrested less than a block away within the hour.
A buddy of his told WPXI that Hewson always dresses up in the costume, and probably wasn't trying to rob the store.
"He was hanging out with a bunch of friends, running around in a Spider-Man costume. It’s just a misunderstanding of somebody robbing a store," Chris Esposito said. "He’s a Spider-Man enthusiast. He’s a college kid and college kids do strange things."
Hewson was arraigned on robbery charges later that morning. His bail was set at $50,000 and Hewson was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation, CBS reports.
