Police: 'Superheroes' Brawl At CT Parking Garage

Associated Press

November 03, 2010

STAMFORD, Conn. — It is assault charges for Spider-Man and Captain America, and breach of peace for Poison Ivy.

Police in Connecticut said a man dressed as Captain America and another as Spider-Man have been arrested after getting into a fight in Stamford over the Halloween weekend.

Stamford Police Lt. Elizabeth Erickson said officers found 25-year-old Michael Sanchez, dressed as Captain America, beating the father of 21-year-old Vincent DeCarlo, sporting a Spider-Man costume, in a parking garage Sunday morning.

The Stamford Advocate reported that DeCarlo allegedly punched Sanchez of Stamford as police tried to break up the scuffle.

DeCarlo’s girlfriend, 18-year-old Nicole Bitterli of Toms River, N.J., dressed as Poison Ivy, also hit Sanchez.

Sanchez and DeCarlo face assault charges. Bitterli faces a breach of peace charges.

It was unclear if any had attorneys.

    Another superhero team was on the scene and observed the following: "DeCarlo's riot grrrl-friend is named Nicole and THIS is New Jersey...are you thinking what I'm thinking, old chum?" "HOLY SNOOKY" "Precisely, Robin! It would appear as if our little Jersey-Whore is at it again." "Gosh, what a Situation"

    So did Poison Ivy try to kiss Sanchez to knock him out?

    When the Super Villans are all planning the end of the world, these guys should not be fighting eachother. What ever happened to the Justice League or the Avengers? I remember when Super Heroes faught together.

    I actually have this issue. Cap did whip Spidey's butt, but only to keep him out of a nieghborhood that S.H.I.E.L.D. had quarantined because of a potential Biological hazard. Spidey may have the speed & spider-sense, but CAP is the best hand to hand combat fighter there is! LOL!

    This is a poorly written article. It appears an older man (DeCarlo's father) was fighting with Sanchez, DeCarlo and Bitterli became involved as the officers arrived. I wonder what the real story is.

    WHY NO VIDEO!?!? WWHHYYYY!?!!? I got the impression that it was the young DeCarlo and his girlfreind who were in costume, and they were fighting Cap' in defense of the elder DeCarlo. The grammar of it IS a bit confusing on which one was Spidey.
