Trying to be Batman can get you arrested

May. 12, 2011by: Dave Davis

Yes, we're all very excited about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. In fact, some people simply can't wait to see Batman, they want to be him.

It seems that a 31-year-old dude garbed in the costume and cowl of the Dark Knight (that's the doughy suspect above) was arrested in Petoskey, MI while in the process of fighting crime.

Well, he was actually "hanging from the wall of a downtown business," but he was definitely armed and ready for any action he might encounter there.

According to the report, the chunky caped crusader was cuffed for trespassing and possession of dangerous weapons when "officers pulled the man back onto the roof and found a baton type striking weapon, a can of chemical irritant spray, and a pair of lead lined gloves."

It seems that his utility belt did not, however, include a container of anti-perspirant.

The masked man's secret identity has not been revealed, but he is clearly not, as the saying goes, "the goddamn Batman".

Extra Tidbit: I guess the motto is: If you're not satisfied with Batman memes, become one.

Why can't we ever get a picture of some chick that got caught trying to fight crime dressed up as Wonder Woman or maybe Power Girl?

I read it as the words Bateman and Arrested. Disappointed.

Good story but at the risk of my dislike button hitting an all time low, what does this have to do with movie news?!

Yawn!

Weak old news. My old fair city of tampa has had 3 batmen, 2 boy wonders, and even girl claiming to be the joker. The world is full of fruit cakes. Surely there is better news than this.

What kind of crime did he expect to find in Petoskey?? Of course if he tried that in Detroit he'd have been dead in 2 minutes.

yea I live in Michigan and I heard about this on a local radio show we have here called the free beer and hotwings show. They were talking about wanting to dress up like Robin and go sit in the courtroom while he's there!

At least Avatards keep to the conventions and don't embarass humanity out in the open like this douche.

And sadly, the first and last time this man saw a vagina was when he was born.

This story would not be entertaining if it was an average built douche. But after seeing how he is pretty chunky, makes it much funnier
