PETOSKEY, Mich. - Police in northern Michigan say a man dressed as Batman got in the way of their investigation into a personal injury accident.
Mark Wayne Williams is charged in Emmet County with one count of resisting and obstructing police.
Michigan State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno says Williams showed up at the accident scene Saturday night "in his Batman outfit" and "wouldn't clear the scene."
Gorno tells the Petoskey News-Review police "had a canine out there," and Williams "kept screwing up the scent."
The sergeant says authorities "didn't want the dog to track Batman instead of the accident scene."
This isn't the first time the 'Petoskey Batman' has made an appearance in the city.
Willaims was arrested in 2011 after he was found dangling from a roof.
He was sentenced to six months of probation for resisting arrest and obstructing officers while wearing his costume.
The 33-year-old Petoskey resident is now facing a two-year felony. He's due back in court on Oct. 18.
A telephone call to a listing for Williams rang unanswered on Wednesday.
