British Police have released a statement this week with words in it they probably never thought would be strung together in any official capacity. They have confirmed overnight that a vigilante dressed as Batman brought a man wanted for burglary into the police station before disappearing into the night. Best of all? It was all caught on tape.
Police in Northern England apprehended a man brought into the station by a man dressed as the caped crusader. It wasn’t as flashy as the Christian Bale Batman suit, instead it was more like 1960’s Adam West Batman had let himself go a bit.
The man the Batman deposited with the rozzers was allegedly wanted on charges of burglary.
“The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full batman outfit. His identity, however, remains unknown,” police said in a baffling statement.
Interestingly, local news outlets have an interview with the woman who claims to have sold the Batman suit to the vigilante, and she irresponsibly revealed the man’s street to the media. Now he’ll have all the villains over causing trouble. [Gawker]
