Self-proclaimed Seattle superhero Phoenix Jones has had a run-in of his own with the law.
The 23-year-old Jones (real name Benjamin John Francis Fodor) was arrested "on suspicion of fourth-degree assault" by Seattle police early Sunday, "after he allegedly doused a group of people with pepper spray," The Seattle Times reports.
Jones posted a $3,800 bail and is due back in court on Thursday.
