Batman Charged With Obstructing A Police Investigation In Michigan

Posted: October 3, 2012

Batman was charged with obstructing a police investigation this weekend in Northern Michigan.

According to the Associated Press, Michigan Police were searching for a man in Petoskey, Michigan, when 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams, AKA Batman, offered to help with the search.

State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno said that officers asked Williams to leave the scene but he insisted on helping police find their criminal.

Gorno said:

“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.”

Gorno said that Williams didn’t put any of the officers in danger but he was quite annoying. The officers ended up confiscating Williams Batman costume and charged him with obstructing a police investigation and resisting arrest.

Williams posted bond and is due back in court later this month.

The last time Williams was arrested for impersonating Batman (yes, this has happened before) he was sentenced to six months of probation and was forbidden to wear costumes.

 Do you think police have been too harsh on this Batman-wanna-be?

Good to see even Batman gets sweaty pits.

I'm honestly surprised this isn't (very slightly) more common. I have a couple of friends who are big into comics, and it seems like many of them are pretty much illustrated vigilantie promotions.

Traverse City is better in nearly all ways - except for proximity to Boyne.  Just saying.
