Knoxville dropping citation against 'Spider-Man'

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Knoxville officials are letting a would-be Spider-Man off the hook.

City Law Director Charles Swanson says a citation against street performer Justin Webb for wearing a Spider-Man costume and mask while hanging around Market Square won't be prosecuted.

Webb told the Knoxville News Sentinel ( ) he appreciates the case being dropped and allows him to focus on his performance.

Webb says he's working on two new costumes - the Lizard and Dr. Octopus. And, he raised the prospect of a costumed friend joining him soon.

"We can put together a downtown fight scene," Webb said.
