If you’re a criminal and a guy dressed up in a crappy Batman costume captures you, do you feel good about yourself? That’s the question.

West Yorkshire Police


Police in West Yorkshire, England captured surveillance footage of the aspiring caped crusader escorting and dropping off a man accused of handling stolen goods and fraud.

Reuters describes the vigilante as “a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume,” which probably made him feel very good about his good deed after reading the article.

A West Yorskshire Police spokesperson said that the not-quite-as Dark Knight’s identity was not revealed to officers on site. Police believe that the caped crusader knew the man’s misdeeds personally as there hadn’t been a public appeal for the man’s arrest.

The 27-year-old is currently in custody and will appear in court later this week, possibly in a suit covered entirely in question marks.
