Batman Arrested On Rooftop In Michigan

So often, real-life superhero-ing goes terribly, terribly awry. WDIV Detroit reports on a bizarre arrest — the photo below is the actual suspect in question:

A 31-year-old man dressed as the comic book character was arrested Wednesday in Petoskey after he was seen hanging from the wall of a downtown business on East Mitchell Street. The Petoskey Department of Public Safety said 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.

The suspect, a Harbor Springs resident, was arrested for trespassing and possession of dangerous weapons. He is being kept in the Emmet County Jail.

    Because he’s the hero Petoskey deserves, but not the one it needs right
    now…and so we’ll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he’s not a
    hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector…a dark knight. 

    I never thought they’d actually catch him though.

     a baton type striking weapon and a can of chemical irritant spray? you mean, a nightstick and a can of pepper spray?  both standard for police officers.. and perfectly legal.. they only arrested him bc he looked like batman.  he may have a case… if he isn’t one.
