No Batman in Petoskey

HOW RUDE! You are going to tell a man NOT to dress up... Where have all the heros gone?!

Harbor Springs man dressed as Batman ordered not to wear costumes

A Michigan man who was arrested after being spotted atop a building while wearing a Batman costume won't be dressing up for a while.

The Petoskey News-Review reports 32-year-old Mark Williams was sentenced Monday to six months of probation. During that time, a judge says he's not allowed to wear costumes — including the Batman one he was wearing when Petoskey police picked him up in May.

The Harbor Springs man earlier pleaded guilty to attempted resisting/obstructing an officer.

Williams said he was inspired by others who dress as super heroes to prevent crime and reach out to the homeless.

Officers in Petoskey confiscated a baton-like weapon and a can of chemical irritant spray. Williams says he didn't intend to use them.
