There’s more bad news for the Seattle-based “real-life superhero” known as Phoenix Jones. After being arrested for assault when a group of clubgoers claimed they were pepper sprayed, Phoenix (real name Ben Fodor) was fired from his job working with autistic children and young adults and is no longer allowed to work with children.
“[I now have] a history of interjecting myself into situations that are dangerous.” But, he added, “I would say I have a history of fighting crime. The whole point of what I do is to keep people safe.”
Although Fodor is now without a day job, he indicates that he will continue to operate as Phoenix Jones regardless of his arrest and unmasking.
