A Man Wearing Nothing But Spiderman Underwear was Arrested for School Vandalism

Posted By on Tue, Jul 9, 2013 at 9:49 AM


A Cincinnati man is accused of breaking into Arch Bishop Moeller High School this weekend, clad only in Spiderman underwear.

19 Action News reported that Thomas Williams, 23, allegedly entered the building after breaking lower level windows with rocks, and then deployed several fire extinguishers inside the school around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

An eye witness, however, told Scene that Williams was seen scaling the buildings and using his Spidey webs to wreck havoc on classrooms throughout the building.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department arrested Williams shortly after he entered the school on counts of Vandalism and Breaking and Entering.

His bond was set at $20,000. The case will go to a grand jury on July 17.
