'Batman' Gets Pulled Over By The Police In Canada

'Batman' Gets Pulled Over By The Police In Canada

Footage has emerged that shows Batman being pulled over by the police on a road in Canada.

Yes, one brave law enforcement officer from Parry Sound, Canada, decided to turn on the blues and twos to force the Caped Crusader into stopping by the side of the road and alight from his Batmobile.

But what was his crime? Well, that's a different story.

He hadn't actually committed one - he's Batman, for Christ's sake.

Well, that's not entirely true either, obviously. He is still a force for good, though.

His real name is Stephen Lawrence and he is a professional Batman impersonator who has built and designed his own Batmobile and an extremely convincing costume. He tours around Comic Con events and visits sick children dressed as the popular superhero. See, I told you he was a nice guy.

He was driving along, minding his own business - or, as best as you can mind your own business when you're driving around dressed as Batman in a realistic Batmobile - when he noticed that a load of people were taking pictures of him, as you would.

He said: "I noticed that I was being tailed by a couple of cameras - I can tell when there are recordings happening of me driving - so I noticed at a stop light that a vehicle...was an OPP cruiser [police car].

"I took advantage of this. I pulled up beside the cruiser in the left turn lane and asked the officer to give me a hand with the cameras behind me. The officer said yes they can."

The policewoman then escorted Batman as he drove, only to put her lights and siren on again in order to pull him over.

Lawrence continues: "I jumped out and asked if everything was OK and the officer said, 'I would like to not miss my opportunity and get a photograph with you'."

Lawrence refused to reveal any more about the copper, so as not to get him into trouble. However, a member of the police force posted a tribute to Lawrence - who is nicknamed 'The Brampton Batman' - on Facebook.

The post, from Constable Ed Sanchuk, said: "What a nice young man Batman is! He was driving his Batmobile - and what an awesome car it is.

"It was very interesting to speak to this man, but more importantly- Batman was actually driving under 80 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone for everyone's safety. It looks like a pretty quick car, but he was driving sensibly.

"I just had to take that opportunity to stop him, and say thank you on behalf of all of us in Norfolk County."
