'Spider-Man' Slugged Officer In Times Square: Cops

>>> Michael R Sisak, AP - 07/27/2014

A man dressed as Spider-Man was arrested on charges he slugged a police officer who told him to stop harassing tourists in Times Square.
Junior Bishop, 25, of Brooklyn, was charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.
The New York Police Department said the officer assaulted Saturday - an 18-month veteran and one of about 50 officers patrolling the bustling tourist area - stepped in after Bishop demanded at least $5 from a woman he posed for a picture with, instead of the $1 tip she offered.
Police said a costumed Bishop "put out his hand and told the woman 5s, 10s or 20s only." Police said the officer told him he could only accept tips - not require payment.
Bishop yelled and cursed at the officer, police said, and told him: "Mind your own (expletive) business."
Police said the officer asked for identification and, when Bishop failed to produce any, moved to arrest him. Bishop broke free and punched the officer in the face, police said, causing a cut and eye swelling.

Yes Celebrate New Chapter

>>> Martin Kielty, TeamRock.com - 07/23/2014

Yes veteran Chris Squire has described 20th studio album Heaven & Earth as a "new chapter" in the band's history.
Speaking in the promotional video below, where each member has their say, the bassist points to the addition of frontman Jon Davison as a key element in their continuing creative development.
Squire says: "Working with Jon for the first time as a writer makes it another chapter in Yes' history of various people being in the band, leaving and new ones coming in. It makes it exciting."
Guitarist Steve Howe adds: "Every album's different - different time, different sensibility, and maybe a different mood too, which comes through in the music. Jon's a very fine musician."
