Ex-Michigan Protectors member 'Bee Sting': I'm trying to help

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A costumed ex-member of the Michigan Protectors group of so-called real-life superheroes who is facing an assault case says he's just trying to help others with crime-fighting efforts.

Adam Besso goes by the nickname "Bee Sting." The 36-year-old Sterling Heights resident was charged following the discharge of a shotgun in a Flint-area mobile home park.

Besso wrote in a letter from jail to The Flint Journal that he rejects the concept of vigilantism and doesn't pretend to be a superhero.

A judge last month ruled there was enough evidence to send Besso's case to Genesee County Circuit Court.

Besso was arrested in April in Burton.

Police have said Besso was wearing a bulletproof vest, a black leather jacket with a bee logo, shin guards and knee pads.
