Hewson’s roommate says this is all just a big misunderstanding.

“He’s not doing anything malicious. I don’t think he’s every considered robbing a store, ever,” Chris Esposito says.

“He’s a Spiderman enthusiast. He’s just a college kid and college kids tend to do strange things,” he said.

He was arrested and faces robbery charges.
