PETOSKEY, Mich. - Holy trespassing, Batman!

A 31-year-old man dressed as the comic book character was arrested Wednesday in Petoskey after he was seen hanging from the wall of a downtown business on East Mitchell Street.

In a release, the Petoskey Department of Public Safety said officers pulled the man back onto the roof and found a baton type striking weapon, a can of chemical irritant spray, and a pair of lead lined gloves.

The suspect, a Harbor Springs resident, was arrested for trespassing and possession of dangerous weapons.

He is being kept in the Emmet County Jail.

Petoskey is in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula, about 225 miles northwest of Detroit.
