A man dressed as the Caped Crusader was on hand to thwart a would-be DVD thief in Fort Worth recently.
Off-duty police officer Damon Cole had been attending a children's safety fair at a local Walmart when he managed to stop a shoplifter who had been attempting to steal $100 worth of DVDs.
As it turned out, one of the discs he had been trying to steal was the Lego Batman Movie.
"I told him, man, you can't steal my movie," said Cole.
Bizarrely, the suspect insisted on taking a selfie with the Dark Knight before leaving the scene.
Cole, who has been dressing up as Batman since 1999, is well known for travelling around the country helping to entertain terminally ill children.
"I want to inspire people," he says.
"I want someone to look at me and say: 'Because of you, I didn't give up.'"
