Seattle's masked crime-fighter Phoenix Jones has lost his day job.

The superhero -- real name Ben Fodor -- was informed by the state Department of Social and Health Services he could no longer work with vulnerable children because of his Oct. 9 arrest for investigation of assault. He says he was breaking up a late night fight and used pepper spray in self-defense.

The 23-year-old has not been charged, but the case is still before the
city attorney. An assault conviction would ban him permanently from
working with vulnerable people.
