Spider-Man's spidey senses must have stopped working over the weekend since he showed up to Echo Park's Lotus Festival with a less-than-enthused response from others, especially from police officers.

In this snapshot the LAPD Rampart Division posted today on Facebook, it shows a man dressed up as Spider-Man being questioned by officers at the festival. The best part is that Spider-Man really looks like he's trying to explain himself with hand gestures in the photo.

According to The Eastsider LA, the Rampart Division explained on Twitter that "event organizers advised that the subject was there w/o authorization and w/o permit. He was warned and released."
