A wild scene unfolded over the weekend in Times Square as one of the many costumed characters got into a brawl with a New York city police officer. According to the New York Post, Junior Bishop was confronted by police after allegedly refusing to accept $1 bills from tourists, demanding fives, tens or twenties.

Bishop was among the countless panhandlers who dress up as cartoon characters and demand money in exchange for posing for pictures with tourists.

The footage from the scene captures Bishop throwing multiple punches at a male officer before he is subdued and placed under arrest.
