Overweight Batman Turns Wanted Man In To Police

Batman Close-Up

Hand me down the shark repellent Batspray!

Police in a station in Bradford, England, were astonished last week when a portly figure dressed in full Batman gear rocked up and handed over a man who was wanted in connection with a number of alleged crimes, including burglary and fraud.

The overweight caped-crusader, in ill-fitting garb, handed over a 27-year-old man to West Yorkshire Police during the early hours of February 25th.

A police spokesperson said: 'The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit. His identity, however, remains unknown'. Holy rusted metal!

It remains unclear how the masked wonder managed to subdue the wanted man and persuade him to go to the station, but the population of Bradford are feeling a whole lot safer tonight, in the knowledge that this Dark Knight has their back.
