He’ll have more time for crime-fighting
Seattle may have one less home-care worker, but it seems to be keeping a “superhero.” Phoenix Jones fights crime by night, donning a blackand-gold mask and suit and roaming the streets of Seattle.
But by day, he’s Ben Fodor and his job was providing home-care services—until the Washington Department of Social and Health Services declined to renew his contract after an October arrest relating to his superhero work.
A spokesperson for the state health department said the charge would disqualify Fodor from working with its clients if he was convicted of assault. Fodor was arrested in October after pepper-spraying a group of people while trying to break up a fight, he said in previous news reports.
“I will only give up my Phoenix Jones identity if I do something I can’t defend morally, and not for any other reason,” Fodor reportedly told the New York Daily News.
