PETOSKEY (AP) – A Michigan man who was arrested after being spotted atop a building while wearing a Batman costume won’t be dressing up for a while.

The Petoskey News-Review reports 32-year-old Mark Williams was sentenced Monday to six months of probation.

During that time, a judge says he’s not allowed to wear costumes – including the Batman one he was wearing when Petoskey police picked him up in May.

The Harbor Springs man earlier pleaded guilty to attempted resisting/obstructing an officer.

Williams said he was inspired by others who dress as super heroes to prevent crime and reach out to the homeless.

Officers in Petoskey, about 225 miles northwest of Detroit, also confiscated a baton-like weapon and a can of chemical irritant spray. Williams says he didn’t intend to use them.
