(Scroll down for video) Spider-Man unleashed his super powers on police officers, who tried to arrest him, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.

The video showed how the Spider-Man and the police officer wrestled on a sidewalk of New York City, before being pinned to the ground.

The Spider-Man was identified as 25-year-old Junior Bishop of Brooklyn.

He was brought before a Manhattan Criminal Court judge on charges of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, damage to others’ property and disorderly conduct.

He was held on $3,500 bail. The altercation began on Saturday at 2:00 p.m., in the tourist area of 42nd Street and Broadway.

The Spider-Man posed for a picture with another man and a woman, who offered him $1. The Spider-Man refused to accept the bill, saying that he only accepts large donations.

That is when police officer Eduardo Molina, told the woman that she could give any amount of money she wanted. “Mind your own business,” Spider-Man told the officer.

The officer asked for his identification. Bishop said that he had none. “The defendant took a fighting stance, in which he raised his arms in front of him and clenched his fists,” the officer said.

Molina was treated at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Bishop had been arrested at least one time before for aggressively demanding money from tourists while dressed as a cartoon character.
