“I’m sad he’s been arrested, but hopefully he’ll get out soon and we can have some champagne,” said his agent, Max Markson.

Spiderman was charged with risking the safety of another by climbing a building and entering enclosed land, police said.

According to his website, Spiderman has climbed more than 70 skyscrapers around the world, including the Empire State Building, the Sears Tower and the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
