Costumed crime fighter will spend more time on probation

Posted: Updated:

A self-proclaimed crime fighter will have to lay the costume aside and spend a little more time on probation.

Adam Besso, 38, who also goes by the nickname "Bee Sting," learned the news from a Genesee County judge yesterday.

He pleaded guilty in 2012 to attempted assault with a weapon following a disturbance at a Flint-area mobile home park. Now he will stay on probation until August 2015.

Terms of his probation prohibit Besso from wearing his costume or going by "Bee Sting."

He pleaded guilty in February to leaving Michigan without his probation officer's permission. Besso also was cited for driving illegally and identifying himself online as "Bee Sting," wearing a mask and a crime-fighting costume.
