ROSE CITY — The man exposed as The Black Knight, Real Life Superhero, has been arrested.
Joshua Stone was booked into the Multnomah County jail Tuesday night. Rose City Police arrested Stone for stalking, which is a misdemeanor crime.
According to prosecutors, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s office decided not to file charges at this time. They can reconsider later.
Stone has been released from jail.
“There was not enough evidence to proceed with the incidents of stalking that were reported to us,” explained Matthew Hall, a deputy district attorney in Multnomah County.
Stone is also trying to change his name. He filed court papers in Yamhill County on Tuesday, requesting that a judge allow him to legally change his name from Joshua Stone to Maxwell P. Gigglebottoms.
A hearing has been scheduled for February 15 to consider the change.
Stone claimed he was a Real Life Superhero; a member of the team, The Alternates. The Alternates released Stone after the arrest and disbanded the team.
The U.S. Department of Defense, in coordination with the Rose City Costumed Crazies Division, are investigating the matter.
