Costumed crime fighter gets stinged

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A one-time costumed crime fighter who took a step on the wrong side of the law will spend more time on probation.

MLive.com reports that a Genesee County judge on Monday added a year to Adam Besso's sentence. He now is to stay on probation until Aug. 6, 2015.

The 38-year-old Besso has gone by the nickname "Bee Sting." He pleaded guilty in 2012 to attempted assault with a weapon following a disturbance at a Flint-area mobile home park.

Terms of his probation prohibit Besso from wearing his costume or going by "Bee Sting."

He pleaded guilty in February to leaving Michigan without his probation officer's permission. Besso also was cited for driving illegally and identifying himself online as "Bee Sting," wearing a mask and a crime-fighting costume.
