Man Dressed As Batman Is Turned Away By Police After Offering Help
The only reasonable explanation for why you would be driving around dressed as Batman would be because you were going to a kids party, right? Wrong, there's another very fair justification - helping the police fight crime, obviously.
The incident was caught on camera in Kelowna, British Columbia, when the man in disguise jumped out of his Batmobile (black truck complete with additional Batman logo) to go and help the police.
The hero was dressed to impress in the full Batman attire - cape, mask, six pack and all.
He strode over to the group of officers - who were clearly dealing with an emergency - and presumably offered his help.
Just as quickly as he got to the officers, he was turned away and could be seen walking back across the street looking rather fed up. Good job his mask was hiding his humiliated expression.
According to the MailOnline, the police were responding to a domestic incident and didn't require the extra pair of hands - he would have known all of this if he had time to check his police scanner. Doh.
So, it comes as no surprise to learn that the police told him that they 'had it under control'. Sorry mate.
There to capture the entire exchange was Melissa Parent - he'd be a fool to think no one would have recorded this - she told the MailOnline: "We were driving home from a friend's house Saturday evening when a police car pulled out in front of us and blocked the intersection.
"He was followed by five more police cars, so we pulled over at a safe distance to see what was going on. Before we knew it, the cops had their guns drawn and Batman came out of nowhere, parked in front of us in his black Dodge truck covered in the Batman logo and sprung into action."
A police spokesman told local media: "Situations like this are dynamic and subject to change very quickly: the presence of 'Batman' or anyone else is an unwanted distraction and foolish as they are placing themselves at risk."
They clearly don't know how Batman works. Anyway, we hope he got paid well for the kids party because that's the most realistic looking Batman we've seen since Ben Affleck.
