Real-life superhero in trouble after publicity

"Bee Sting" is in trouble after police say he violated his probation.

Publicity over a dispute between two men over leadership of a costumed band of self-professed real-life Michigan superheroes ended up getting one of them in trouble again.

The Flint Journal and The Detroit News report Adam Besso, who hails from the Detroit area and is nicknamed "Bee Sting," pleaded guilty last month to leaving Michigan without permission of his probation agent. He's to be sentenced March 31.

Besso says authorities should have better things to do than pursue him. Probation officials in part cited Facebook posts.

In an article in early February by The Detroit News, Besso also indicated that he drove with a suspended license. The article highlighted a rift between Besso and Mark Williams, who dresses up as Batman to patrol the northern Michigan community of Petoskey.
