Taking a burglary suspect to a local police station would’ve been enough to warrant “Today’s Badass” status. But doing it dressed as Batman goes above and beyond.
Yes, the Caped Crusader is real. He might be fat and British, but he’s real. According to a spokesperson for the West Yorkshire Police, “The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit. His identity, however, remains unknown.”
It’s also a mystery how the portly vigilante managed to capture the 27-year-old alleged miscreant. Probably with the help of a kindly old butler full of inspirational speeches?
Clearly a fan of the oldies, the real-life superhero wore Adam West‘s 1960s version of the costume. We’re hoping it’s not the last we see of this wannabe Dark Knight. And if he keeps fighting crime, maybe he’ll even lose a few pounds in the process.
