Police said a costumed Bishop "put out his hand and told the woman 5s, 10s or 20s only." Police said the officer told him he could only accept tips not require payment.
Bishop yelled and cursed at the officer, police said, and told him: "Mind your own (expletive) business."
Police said the officer asked for identification and, when Bishop failed to produce any, moved to arrest him.
Bishop broke free and punched the officer in the face, police said, causing a cut and eye swelling.
The officer, whose name was not released, was treated and released at New York University's Langone Medical Center.

"Bishop broke free and punched the officer in the face"Hey, there's something you don't see every day
I can’t remember when I have read such a poorly written article. I guess liberalism trumps writing ability in Urnalism school now days.
Being handcuffed for unfriendliness is extremely uncomfortable. And its causing him to lose money. Dressing up as Spiderman and posing in Times Square is how some people make money. So the guy goes berserk. This is when I would tell my child to use his words. This guy has issues. Has all of Times Square to watch over. And now has to run to the station with this hot head.
“I’m SPIDER-MAN” bi@...OW! OW! OW! OW!....”
I was in Times Square recently and I just ignored all those costume-wearing clowns. Also, they now have the M&M store and Hershey’s store which are nothing but overpriced tourist traps, with parents dragging their whiny little kids around. I liked TQ better when it was a little seedier.
Sounds like he was shaking down a tourist for bigger “tips”. In my world, which also doesn’t exist, this creep would be worried about retribution from concerned citizens.
Hey, Mister! Wanna Date!
If you scream curse words at a cop, you pretty much know what will happen. If you punch a cop in the face, you are definitely in trouble.
It’s true. Neither Yelling at a cop nor punching a cop is a good idea. But lets assume this guy is in the wrong. I don’t want to defend him. Lets look at the cop. He seems to have handcuffed a guy because he did not like him. I think a lot of people go a little nuts the first time they are handcuffed. Its the same as someone being claustrophobic. Your brain really hates being in such a helpless position. So cops should not handcuff people who don’t break the law, ever.
I think you have a combination of a rookie cop and a costumed beggar demanding handouts and over-reacting when the cop told him to play by the rules. Trouble waiting to happen.
“Does whatever a spider can.”
If you ask me, Spiderman showed tremendous restraint by not using his webshooter.
I grew up in Jersey City just a Path ride away. You were seen there many times
Don't ask me how I know.
How worthless was the cop's female partner in taking Spidy down?
Clearly this guy needs to review or watch for the first time Chris Rock’s How not to get your ass kicked by the police.
the rules as per Chris
obey the law
use common sense
turn that shit off
shut the fuck up
get a white friend
dont ride with a crazy woman
