“Man dressed as comic superhero jumps on cars, lassos them with ‘web’ of rope in Rosh Ha’ayin:

Israeli drivers in Rosh Ha’ayin were met with an unusual sight Sunday evening, when a man dressed as Spiderman decided to use his superpowers to engage commuters sitting in evening traffic.

Several drivers on the scene called the traffic police hotline to report the superhero’s unique participation in the traffic jam. The man leapt from vehicle to vehicle, occasionally attempting to lasso cars with an apparent ‘web’ made of ropes.

Policewoman Ayala Cohen and police volunteer Uriel Dozriv arrived at the Rosh Ha’ayin junction, only to have their police car assaulted by a ‘spider web’. The two were able to subdue the man easily, upon getting out of the vehicle.

When asked why he had dressed up as the comic super hero and endangered drivers, the man replied that he had been hit by a car and had found himself in the hospital wearing the costume.

After taking the man into police custody, cops discovered that he was a 24-year-old resident of Ariel. He was sent to a psychiatric evaluation.”

I guess no one told him that “with great power there must also come great responsibility!”  Thanks to my friend JJ for sending this my way.  Ex animo, Spider-Girl!
