Don't dress as Batman and hang off a building or you will be arrested

Police in Petoskey, Michigan have jailed an unidentified man whom they found dressed as Batman, dangling helplessly from the side of a downtown office building. While previous crimes involving costumed characters have at least had the added dignity of “just doing it to rob a bank,” the 31-year-old “Batman” could claim no such excuse, instead racking up the far-lamer charges of trespassing and possession of dangerous weapons for also carrying a striking baton, a pair of lead-lined gloves, and a can of pepper spray. Unfortunately, judging from the photo above, not even this makeshift arsenal could have helped Batman defeat his newest arch-nemesis: Unsightly Wetness. [ClickOnDetroit via Gawker]
