Phoenix Jones back on patrol in Seattle

SEATTLE — Phoenix Jones is back on patrol. He and his posse of Seattle superheroes went on patrol Saturday night with some regular citizens he invited to tag along.

KOMO-TV reports Jones, whose real name is Benjamin Fodor, left from Pike Place Market around 10 p.m. and made a stop at Occupy Seattle before heading to Belltown.

Fodor says he wants to clear up confusion about his role and continue his mission. He says he calls 911 when he sees someone breaking the law. He steps in if things get dangerous. He feels every citizen could do that.

He was arrested early on the morning of Oct. 9, after he says he was trying to break up a fight.

He was arrested on suspicion of assault, but prosecutors earlier this week declined to file charges.
