"I am vengeance. I am the night. I am ... going to stay here until it gets really awkward and you're forced to arrest me!"

Did you think that Bruce Wayne was Batman? Oh my, no. It's actually 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams. The reason why the Dark Knight's identity can be named with such certainty is that this is the second time the dude's been arrested in the last year for the crime of walking while Batman.

Last time, Williams was found lurking on rooftops dressed like a big, freaky bat while carrying chemical spray, a baton and some sand-filled gloves. He was arrested for carrying those weapons and for obstructing an officer. He was sentenced to six months' probation and instructed not to wear any more costumes.

Well, you can't keep Batman down, and so he's at it again.

"Troopers were responding to the scene of a personal injury accident in which the driver had left the scene.

"When we arrived, (Williams) was at the scene in his Batman outfit. He wouldn't clear the scene and we had a canine out there and he kept screwing up the scent," Gorno said. "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."

For his trouble, Williams was sentenced to another six months' probation and told, yet again, to stop dressing up like a weirdo.

So what we're saying is—see you back here in six months!
