After several troubling incidents this summer, it looks like anti-Semitic Elmo is back. The New York Times City Room blog reports:

The man, Adam Sandler, 48, who in June was removed from Central Park in an ambulance after going on a rant, was arrested in front of the Toys “R” Us store in Times Square shortly after 3 p.m., the police said. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Mr. Sandler was shouting and drawing a crowd that was blocking traffic, and he refused to leave, the police said.

A sad continuation of a creepy story.
