Several people dressed as movie characters got into a brawl on Hollywood Boulevard that ended with a man dressed as "Pirates of the Caribbean" character Capt. Jack Sparrow being pepper-sprayed, according to police.

Officer Rosario Herrera said it was unclear why the Sparrow character, made famous in the movies by Johnny Depp, got into a fight with people dressed as Catwoman and an alien in front of the Kodak Theatre Thursday evening.

Officers responded to a call that there was a disturbance on the stretch of Hollywood Boulevard known to host costumed characters who hustle tourists for a few bucks in exchange for a photo with a celebrity lookalike.

Sparrow was treated for minor injuries. No arrests have been made.
The Los Angeles Times reported that officers were searching the streets after Catwoman, the alien and a second pirate or at least people in those costumes fled the scene.

The paper said that in September that someone dressed as SpongeBob Square Pants was held by police after a fracas involving two women in the Hollywood area; a separate incident saw Spider-Man taken away in handcuffs.

Capt. Jack Sparrow pepper-sprayed? Another senseless tragedy like the flipping of Susie Pancake.



Bellingham, Wash. 8/3/10: IHOP's mascot Suzie Pancake was assaulted by a bystander at about 3 p.m. Tuesday outside of a Bellingham, Wash., restaurant, police say. A 19-year old woman dressed in her pancake suit was outside the IHOP, waving at Passers-by when 22-year old James Manas approached her and began yelling at her and hitting the suit with his hand, Bellingham Police spokesman Mark Young said.
