Cops bust Iron Man, Spider-Man and Elmo in Times Square


Two Iron Men, a Spider-Man and an Elmo were accused of blocking pedestrians, while Spider-Man also grabbed a passerby to pose for a picture, cops said.

The busts came just hours after cops started handing out fliers telling visitors to the Crossroads of the World that they don't have to pay for photos.

The four rogue characters were charged with disorderly conduct late Saturday, with "Spider-Man" William Suarez, 32, also charged with aggressive panhandling for allegedly laying his hands on a potential mark.

Suarez, "Iron Man" Javier Hernandez, 37, and "Elmo" Jose Maria, 25, were all locked up pending arraignment, while the other "Iron Man," Khalid Lahmadi, 40, was released with a summons.
