The mystery of Phoenix Jones — the citizen superhero who stalks the streets of Seattle seeking out injustice and, for the most part, gets his ass kicked — has at last been solved. The Smoking Gun has the arrest report of one Benjamin Fodor, a 23-year-old mixed martial arts fighter who was detained by police on Sunday for assaulting four people outside a nightclub with pepper-spray.
Fodor claims he was trying to "break up [a] fight." The victims insisted they were just hanging out, and wanted Fodor arrested for "attacking them."
Fodor spent seven hours in custody on Sunday before posting bond and stealing away into the night. Because he's the hero Seattle deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A brother from the ashes. A Phoenix Jones. [TSG, photos via TSG]
