Batman goes bad

A bad Batman was arrested in Times Square on Wednesday night (24.02.16) after he ran off with $50 from a tourist's purse.

According to the New York Post, DC Comics fan Jose Escalona-Martinez disguised himself as the hero of Gotham City but was simply an imposter, after he turned bad and allegedly pick-pocketed an out-of-towner from Ireland.

A Better Times Square tweeted: "A dark night for Gotham when fake Batman is led away in cuffs."

The Escalona-Martinez was charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property.
