There’s more trouble for those costumed characters in Times Square.
The New York Post reports two Iron Men, a Spider-Man and an Elmo were busted over the weekend on disorderly conduct charges. The Spider-Man was also accused of grabbing a person to pose for a picture.
The crackdown comes following a series of incidents involving costumed characters who become too aggressive. They’ve often been accused of shaking down tourists for money after taking a picture with them.
Over the weekend, police handed out fliers that read, “Photos with costumed characters are free. Tipping is optional.”
