You all remember Phoenix Jones, the self proclaimed superhero of Seattle who took the law into his own hands; well it turns out he’s met his match. Attempting to break up a fight, a gun was pulled on Phoenix followed by a swift kick in the face, breaking his nose.
Komo News reports:
“They were all swearing at each other and like about to fight,” Phoenix said. So he stepped in to break up the brawl and one of the guys turned on him.
“He starts swinging on me and starts an altercation with me.”
Phoenix said he called 911, put one of the men in a headlock and waited for police. But seconds later, Phoenix said, another man pulled out a gun.
When he let go of the man he was holding, the man kicked Phoenix in the face, breaking his nose. Both men got away.
Phoenix said it was no big deal, but the attack is exactly what police were afraid was going to happen when Phoenix and his superhero cohorts started patrolling the city.
“They insert themselves into a potentially volatile situation and then they end up being victimized as well,” Jamieson said.
Police have told Phoenix to replace his cape with a cell phone and just call 911.
