Batman arrested for interfering in police business

‘A man dressed as comic book superhero Batman found himself on the wrong side of the law after being arrested for interfering in police business. American caped crusader Mark Wayne Williams was arrested after refusing to leave the scene of a roadside accident as police searched for a missing driver in Michigan on Saturday. ‘He wouldn’t clear the scene, and we had a canine out there and he kept screwing up the scent,’ officer Jeff Gorno told the Petoskey News-Review. ‘He said he wanted to help us look for the driver. We didn’t want the dog to track Batman instead of the accident scene, and he was getting in the way of officers who had a job to do.’

‘It’s the second time this year the 33-year-old has been arrested while crime fighting dressed in a homemade Batman outfit. In July, police were alerted to reports of a man dressed in a cape and tights on the roof of a business in the city. Police found him in possession of a baton, a can of chemical irritant spray and a pair of sand-filled gloves’ – Metro.

Policeman discovers “suspicious light source”

‘A police constable has risked embarrassment after launching an investigation into a “suspicious light source” which was later found to be the moon. The constable was on duty late one evening last month when he spotted a “shining light” glowing over Clent Hills, a range of scenic peaks which rise up more than 1,000ft in Worcestershire. He radioed his sergeant, telling him he was “off up the hills” to investigate the “suspicious bright light” from ‘over the other side of the hills’. He warned that as he was “single-crewed” he might require back-up if he found a crime in progress. The area is known as a hotspot for outdoor sex – and it is believed the officer thought he might catch offenders engaged in sexual activity when he mistook the bright light of the moon for car headlights. After a 20-minute walk up the hills, however, the red-faced officer radioed his sergeant back, telling him that the ‘light source’ was in actual fact the moon’ -The Daily Telegraph.

Bad strip-tease leads to ruptured bladder

Patrick Gallagher, a groom-to-be whose bachelor party lead to a Philadelphia strip club has filed a lawsuit against the club due to negligence. He is demanding $50,000 due to medical costs, mental anguish and physical trauma caused by a woman employed by the club.

Gallagher had bought the “Bachelor’s Package” at the club, which prompted dancers to bring him on stage and lie him flat on his back beneath the pole. One dancer went up the pole above him, and “from a great height she launched herself down onto his abdomen,” said his attorney, Neil Murray.

The pain was so severe the next day that he went to the hospital. He suffered from internal bleeding, among other injuries.
