“Batman” was arrested and his costume confiscated when he refused to leave the scene of a crime. He was charged with obstructing a police investigation in Michigan, according to recent reports.
Batman usually stands for upholding justice and the law, at least by his own lights. But then, that’s Gotham City’s Batman. Michigan’s Batman needs to work on being a little bit slicker or at least just leave it to the authorities.
As police in northern Michigan were searching for a man in Petoskey over the weekend, they were interrupted by 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams, AKA Batman, who wanted to help them out, the Associated Press reported.
State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno said the officers told Williams to leave the scene but he insisted that he help them find their criminal.
Gorno said to the AP: “He wouldn’t clear the scene, and we had a canine out there and he kept screwing up the scent. … He said he wanted to help us look for the driver. … We didn’t want the dog to track Batman instead of the accident scene, and he was getting in the way of officers who had a job to do.”
Apparently this was a job for a dog, not a “bat.”
