'Batman' arrested for obstructing police

A man dressed as Batman was arrested after refusing to leave a crime scene during an investigation.

Mark Wayne Williams decided to take it upon himself to fulfill the role of the Caped Crusader a little too literally when he turned up at a crime scene in Michigan over the weekend in full costume. Officers had been using sniffer dogs to track down a suspect in the area and weren't too appreciative when Williams aka Batman refused to leave. "He wouldn’t clear the scene, and we had a canine out there and he kept screwing up the scent," said Sgt. Jeff Gorno. "He said he wanted to help us look for the driver."

Williams was eventually picked up for obstructing a police investigation and resisting arrest. It wasn't the first time 'Batman' had been in trouble with the law either, in a previous incident he was sentenced to six months probation and banned from wearing costumes after being found on top of a building wielding a baton.

"Batman usually stands for upholding justice and the law, at least by his own lights."
