PETOSKEY, Mich. (AP) - A dispute between two men over leadership of a costumed band of self-professed real-life Michigan superheroes has escalated into a battle of insults.

The Detroit News reports Mark Williams, who dresses up as Batman to patrol the northern Michigan community of Petoskey, and Adam Besso, who hails from the Detroit area and is nicknamed "Bee Sting," became friends after Williams got in trouble with police in 2011.

Now, however, the newspaper says their dispute has split the dozen-member Michigan Protectors group.

Williams was arrested in 2011 after being spotted atop a building while wearing a Batman costume. He was arrested again in 2012 for interfering with police at an accident scene.

Besso was arrested in 2012 after his shotgun went off while he patrolled near Flint while in costume.
